welcome to #suburbansenshi3

[01:37] <Priest> once you begin to produce enough holy water to not need the eyedrops treatment, we can proceed to which one you wish to undergo.
[01:43] <Priest> but tomorrow, we shall take a trip to the mayor's office
[01:47] * Priest brings out a set of clothes, fitting for an acolyte and a priest of this place
[01:50] <Priest> you will have to have these on for the trip tomorrow
[01:51] <Priest> and if your friend wishes, there is a set for her, too.
[02:00] <Georgia Banno> I see?
[02:07] * Priest nods and bows
[02:07] <Priest> it's time to retire for now, but be up early tomorrow, everyone.
[02:11] <Georgia Banno> ..very well?
[02:12] * Priest and Elder retire off to two other rooms.
[02:16] <D. Kakaku> well, how was your day today?
[02:17] * D. Kakaku blinks instinctively a few times
[02:29] <Georgia Banno> fine
[02:32] * D. Kakaku blinks a few more times
[02:33] * D. Kakaku nods, but keeps on blinking
[02:38] * D. Kakaku wipes his eyes
[02:38] <D. Kakaku> that's good
[02:44] <D. Kakaku> who knows, we might see more than just the mayor's office
[02:55] * Georgia Banno nods
[03:02] <D. Kakaku> welp, I'm heading to bed, any reprieve from having water dripped onto my eyes.
[03:02] * Georgia Banno nods and heads off
[03:02] *** Georgia Banno has left #suburbansenshi3
[03:05] *** D. Kakaku has left #suburbansenshi3 (Yeah! Let's go!)

[12:56] *** D. Kakaku has joined #suburbansenshi3
[12:56] <@spiritflame> konnichiwa D. Kakaku
[12:58] * D. Kakaku is in a new set of clothes, closely resembling a mix between spirit armor, and something resembling a Kai outfit.
[12:59] <D. Kakaku> okay, but do I have to wear this while I'm here, though?
[12:59] <Belona> et acolytus qui est circumdatio vestimentis pro universo tua disciplina.
[13:03] <Belona> Et contemplabor semitas tuas telum institutionis perficere possunt capere cum per ipsum et in cythraul.
[13:04] <Priest> you will be keeping those clothes for as long as your training requires, and it nwill be complete once you are able to take down a Cythraul on your own.
[13:07] <D. Kakaku> ok, but can we hold off on the holy water eyedrops for a bit?
[13:07] <Belona> No!
[13:08] * Belona tilts Daniel's head, holding one of his eyes open.
[13:09] <Belona> posse creare est in oculis vestris aqua sanctis suis, erimus ego et permanere usque ad Eyedrops.
[13:10] * Belona splashes a drop of Holy water into one eye, then the cycle repeats for the other eye.
[13:10] * D. Kakaku blinks instinctively.
[13:12] <Belona> aviam tuam Judy quod habuit haec pati, ut bene, suus 'non nunc primum Ego quoque hoc facere.
[13:17] <D. Kakaku> where are the others, anyway?
[14:38] <D. Kakaku> where is the car we'r taking to cape may, anyway?
[14:38] *** a car pulls up to the church.
[14:48] <D. Kakaku> hello? elder? georgia?
[15:05] <Georgia Banno> yes?
[15:12] <D. Kakaku> ready to go?
[15:16] <Georgia Banno> I belive so
[15:17] <D. Kakaku> ok, ready
[15:18] * D. Kakaku , Belona, Elder and Priest get into the car that has pulled up.
[15:24] * Georgia Banno gets into the car
[15:26] *** the car soon drives off.
[15:30] <D. Kakaku> these are still a bit uncomfortable.
[15:31] *** Sandman & Seashore light passed by.
[15:32] *** soon, the car crosses over the bridge over the canal
[15:33] <D. Kakaku> can I get my regular clothes back?
[15:33] <Belona> Ego dixi vobis non est circumdatio eos per schola. Haec vestis nunc inutilis.
[15:34] <Belona> *^Ego dixi vobis non est circumdatio eos per tua disciplina. Haec vestis nunc inutilis.
[15:34] *** The car passes over the canal as...
[15:35] * Belona throws the clothes out the car's window and over the bridge.
[15:36] <D. Kakaku> what the? why?
[15:37] <Belona> Haec vestis nunc inutilis. et acolytus qui custodiunt vestimenta in durante tua disciplina.
[15:42] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Cape May, NJ
[15:42] *** the car soon pulls up into a small building.
[15:44] <Elder> we are here.
[15:58] *** the car doors open
[15:58] * D. Kakaku , the priest and elder, and Belona step out.
[16:28] * Georgia Banno walks out
[16:33] * Elder walks up to the door to knock on it.
[16:35] * The Door opens "yes?"
[16:38] <Elder> the hidden history, let us see it.
[16:38] <???> first time in 40 years?
[16:38] <Elder> yes
[16:43] * Mayor nods, 8 mayors and 40 years, come in.
[16:43] <Mayor> *^
[16:43] * Elder and priest head on inside
[16:44] * Belona heads on in
[16:44] * D. Kakaku walks in after them
[16:59] * Georgia Banno follows
[17:00] *** inside, on display, are a shield, a pair of daggars, and a gun with a shiny bullet
[17:12] *** there are also pictures of Steam machines dating back to the mid 1930's
[17:28] <Belona> vos animadverto in imaginibus?
[17:29] <D. Kakaku> ummm, okay?
[17:31] <Mayor> don't mind her, she speaks latin for a good reason.
[17:33] <Georgia Banno> I see
[17:33] <D. Kakaku> right, what are these pictures for?
[17:34] * Mayor takes down the pictures of the steam powered machines and hands them over for a while.
[17:35] <Mayor> as the rest of the world converted to oil and gas, Cape May marched on with Steam Power throughout the 1930's
[17:39] <Mayor> the city was advancing bit by bit, though it wasn't as fast as the world was advancing.
[17:44] <Mayor> and the various churches around the city began their research efforts, even through the 1931 fire in West Cape May.
[17:47] * Georgia Banno makes note of all this
[17:49] <Mayor> prelude to the few attacks ahead
[17:53] <Mayor> in 1935, 1938, 1939 and 1941.
[17:54] * Georgia Banno remembers these dates
[18:12] <Belona> Cythraul Maximus I, II, III ne sit maleficus nomine Shang Tsung.
[18:16] <Georgia Banno> ?
[18:17] * Belona grits her teeth and holding her fists
[18:18] <Belona> videte maledictam Elymas magus
[18:23] <Mayor> yes, the attacks increased in strength, but Tsung was one of the most power foes the Cape May Acolytes fought, it required the help of the actual country's military.
[18:25] <Mayor> the military agreed to help on two conditions.
[18:28] <Mayor> 1, they woudl have to let them dig the canal that separates this city from the rest of the county
[18:28] <Mayor> and 2, they demand that we end our dependence on Steam power and its technology.
[18:31] <Georgia Banno> I see..fascinating
[18:33] <Mayor> Tsung was stabbed, bashed and shot by the Cape May Acolytes, all at once, as he fell, the Military dug one trench, and buried him in it, still with the energy binding him to the ground.
[18:33] <Mayor> he cannot get out unless he has the blood of those who got him.
[18:41] <Mayor> Alicia elected to move away so as to not let him target her, but some bad tidings in another country prompted her to return.
[18:42] <Mayor> with her children, no less.
[18:42] <Mayor> she tired of the constant Cythraul attacks, and even when Judy became an acolyte, Shang Tsung started targeting her, too.
[18:51] <Mayor> sending out his toughest Cythraul with his power, he targeted her at her prime.
[18:51] <D. Kakaku> okay... and?
[18:52] <Mayor> Judy used her shield and Alicia used her gun to put down the cythraul and prevent any more damage, we haven't seen any activity since.
[18:54] <D. Kakaku> until this week, it looks like.
[19:07] <Mayor> yes, I have been informed of the vandalism.
[20:11] *** the conversation would go on for a while.

[19:24] *** The adventure continues (finally!!). Apologies for the delays, but so far this week has been HELL for me, and the next couple of days are going to be just as bad if not worse.
[19:30] * Alldrogis Valkyvida continues to move forward through the thickening water. It almost feels like the water is becoming denser the closer you all get to the Fabricator and the deeper part of the Crystal Caverns.
[19:33] <Chibi-Leady> - ...I've never gotten this deep before now. I have no idea what's down here. -
[19:38] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> What do you know about down here?
[19:39] <Chibi-Leady> - Only that the Shadow Leviathans can eat people whole and that that weird wolf-girl was really desperate to find something down here. -
[19:40] * Capt. David O`Cain has taken the Queen's Bounty out of port and into the sea, and leads the kansen that are fully ready and raring to go towards the theater of operations while blaring some music from its speakers in hopes of motivating/psyching everyone up
[19:41] *** The rest of the Kansen near the Island start assembling for battle and waiting for Shikikan AnTIlZha's orders.
[19:41] *** Eisenblut is skimming across the water beside the Queen's Bounty.
[19:44] <Bismarck> Are all of you ready to fight for Father's love?
[19:45] <Admiral Hipper> Ja!!!
[19:45] <Prinz Heinrich> Absolutely!
[19:46] <Z-23> My body is fully prepared for fight for our Father's love!
[19:47] <Z-18> My smile shall captivate him utterly!
[19:48] <Gneisenau> I am looking forward to proving myself worthy!
[19:48] <Roon> I will STEAL his love like the treasure it is!!! >:D
[19:49] <Tirpitz> I'm more than ready to defeat our foes!!
[19:49] * Eisenblut gives Tirpitz some silence for several seconds.
[19:50] <Karlsruhe> We're not talking about his foes, Tirpitz. We're talking about HIM!!
[19:51] *** Everyone laughs a little.
[19:52] <Scharnhorst> Get ready, Father! I'm going to write the book on your praise and love!
[19:52] * Prinz Eugen scoffs a little.
[19:52] <Prinz Eugen> Amateurs. I'm going to option to SCREENPLAY!!
[19:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Oi, the hell you lot yammering about?
[19:54] <Prinz Eugen> It will be a cinematic masterpiece. It will win awards for best director, best actor, original score and cinematography!
[19:54] <Naoto> (Dear Seraph above, I thought Mr. Langister had his hands full with just the T-Dolls.....)
[19:54] *** David - remember the anime you showed us all? Imagine Prinz Eugen from THAT saying all of this in that accent of hers.
[19:55] <Bismarck> I am intrigued. What are you going to call it?
[19:55] <Prinz Eugen> "I Love You, Father!" , the Motion Picture!
[19:57] *** Everyone in Ironblood starts laughing hysterically, while all the other Kansen sailing along with the Queen's Bounty just look at them like they're insane...or just spontaneously combusted in the most spectacular ways.
[19:58] * Burroughs is having all of this beamed up to her via Durand. (This will make for the most amusing home movie night♫)
[20:02] <Graf Zeppelin > First we must destroy Father's enemies thoroughly. What is the nature of the threats we are being deployed against?
[20:10] <Capt. David O`Cain> From what I know, we've got a fleet of unknown ships and a Leviathan that's about to thaw out.
[20:11] <Bismarck> Unknown ships? ALLIANCE?! Wait...nein...NOT Alliance, correct?
[20:14] <Capt. David O`Cain> They didn't appear to be Alliance according to Long Island, Ranger, and Zuikaku. But their scout drones were destroyed, so it's possible they the new ships are hostile.
[20:15] * Bismarck doesn't reply right away as she closes her eyes.
[20:16] <Bismarck> No visuals were available on the AL network that's been established. This is unfortunate.
[20:18] <Capt. David O`Cain> That's not good.
[20:20] <Bismarck> As for the beast you is still not yet mobile?
[20:21] <Capt. David O`Cain> Enterprise! Status!
[20:25] <Enterprise> Responding.
[20:39] <Enterprise> Apologies for the delay.
[20:40] <Enterprise> I managed to perform a scout flight myself. The approaching ships are still on a direct course for the Island. ETA, 15 minutes.
[20:40] <Capt. David O`Cain> And the Leviathan?
[20:40] <Enterprise> They all have turrets, so it's likely that they're armed.
[20:42] <Enterprise> As for the Leviathan, it's broken free of its tomb in the glacier and is trying to dig its way through the stone of the mountainside. Unable to determine when it might break free without more knowledge of the geology.
[20:42] <Enterprise> However, it's safe to believe that it will be fully free soon.
[20:49] <Enterprise> How long until the rest of your force is able to arrive?
[21:01] <Capt. David O`Cain> We're going full speed at 45 knots! Be there in 10 minutes!
[21:04] <Enterprise> Acknowledged.
[21:05] *** And pause here for now since I need to get going. Wish me luck for the next two days.
[21:05] *** I'm probably going to need it.

[21:57] * DM looks at Vandal.
[21:57] *** Vandal is your average everyday Vandal

[21:57] * DM looks at Vandal Lillithson.
[21:57] *** Vandal Lillithson is your average everyday Vandal Lillithson

[19:08] *** Testing
[19:09] <Burroughs> You are yes, this is duck, hello?
[19:09] *** Back down in the Crystal Caverns (a.k.a. the DeepDownDarkDeepDown)...
[19:10] *** More of those weird alien mini-submarines speed out of the lower reaches!
[19:12] * continues to swim deeper and deeper
[19:12] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ^
[19:12] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Descos! Report statuses!
[19:16] <Faria-02> We're still alive and kicking, though I think Yusa-44 is gonna need a moment.
[19:16] *** Meanwhile, the remaining Submarine Girls are speeding alongside Alldrogis and Leady, providing cover.
[19:18] <Archerfish> Additional contacts detected. Looks like more of those Shadow Leviathans!
[19:19] <Faria-02> Guess we'll have to give 'em the spiciest of meatballs...... or some amateur acupuncture.
[19:20] *** The enemy submarines accelerate and launch a spread of torpedoes!!
[19:22] <Zepp-82> OK, don't get too close to those torpedos. They have proximity detonation triggers....
[19:24] * I-26 screams as she takes a direct hit from a blue-green laser that cuts open her side!
[19:25] <Albacore> Break and attack!! Fire at will, girls!
[19:26] * Zepp-82 and the other Descos break off, targeting the subs for some laser fire! Queen-01, however, gets a different idea ---- to try and collapse some very heavy rocks atom the subs!
[19:29] *** Unfortunately, collapsing the rocks overhead isn't going to work! The material of the Caves now has changed, transitioning from the deep lavender crystal formations into oddly geometric-looking collections of blocky material that don't look natural. The color down here has become a ruddy crimson, like the formations are being lit from within by something. It's also much harder too: there's something not entirely normal about this place.
[19:31] * Queen-01 will simply adjust as necessary. The new material may be much tougher, but that simply means a new method may be needed to crack it.
[19:36] *** A Shadow Leviathan howls as it lurches towards Queen-01!!
[19:37] <Queen-01> Oh boy!
[19:37] * Queen-01 quickly dodges to a side, leaving behind a "cloud" to distract the Leviathan!
[19:41] *** Surcouf and Torricelli concentrate fire on that Shadow Leviathan and strike it with several torpedoes, causing the Leviathan writhe in pain as it takes multiple hits along its length.
[19:50] * Albacore , Archerfish, Dace, I-58, U-556, and I-56 duck and weave among the arches and spires of this strange place as they start attacking the alien submarines, while I-19 and I-168 get I-26 away from there
[19:51] * I-25 accelerates to flank speed and tries to get past all of the attackers to find the best way forward.
[19:51] <I-25> Does anyone know of this place's? layout? Where are we trying to get to?
[19:51] * Faria-02 and Zepp-82 aid the Sea-Dolls by targeting the Submarines. They give 'em a very good look-over to find potential weak points to exploit.
[19:57] *** The alien submarines seem to be fairly well-made with no obvious design flaws. The hydrodynamic streamlining is good, and the hulls are segmented for ease of turning. However, that ALSO means they have "flanges" - weak-spots in the pressure hull that limits maximum durability. They MIGHT be vulnerable to direct physical attacks that strike the hull
[19:59] <Faria-02> Hmm, looks like a good physical hit in the right spot will make them fold pretty easily.
[20:17] *** Another Shadow Leviathan closes in.
[20:19] * Yusa-44 sends a very small cloud out towards the Leviathan. Will it smash through it, or try to eat it?
[20:20] *** The Leviathan tries to swim through it.
[20:26] * The cloud was actually a small swarm of micro-scopic Mini-Descos. They're gonna get just about everywhere on that Leviathan's face ---- eyes, nose, mouth......
[20:28] *** The Shadow Leviathan keeps coming on, its jaws gaping wide!!
[20:35] * Yusa-44 backs away, and then triggers the mini-Desco cloud to go "BOOM"!
[20:42] *** The whole forward section of the Shadow Leviathan goes P-TOMPH!!!!!!
[20:43] *** The shockwave knocks everyone back, and as the water clears a little and the compression wave passes you see that most of the front section of the Leviathan looks like it's been put through a food processor.
[20:47] <Yusa-44> ...a bit gross, but it works.
[20:55] *** Nearby you, one of the alien submarines explodes as it takes a couple of hits, and Albacore and Archerfish shoot past you.
[20:56] <Archerfish> Too slow~!
[20:56] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Have any Descos been able to scout ahead?
[20:58] <Faria-02> One moment, I'll take a look.
[20:58] * Faria-02 heads forward to do so. What might she find?
[21:01] *** Wasn't someone taking a peek on Kagerou previously using a tentacle-eye?
[21:03] * Indeed they were! Introducing to you all now.... Gamma-95, Ionia-33, and last but not least, Viola-10!
[21:04] * Against all odds, these three Descos used the art of invisibility to sneak their way up to where Kagerou should be! Now it shall be time to rescue Gensokyo's best woof!
[21:11] *** Inside where Kagerou is the interior of the Fabricator has become a chamber of horrors!!! LM-101 has accessed a large number of the facilities' nano-forges, and is growing a great many things. Including the alien submarines you're all fighting!
[21:15] * Kagerou Imaizumi is still laying on the ground where she'd fallen. The automed module of her hostile environment suit is still keeping her stabilized and unconscious for now, and it looks like the power will keep her that was for a while longer
[21:15] * The Desco Trio silently observe this, sending this information back to the other Descos. Viola-10 makes an attempt to stealth-slither a couple of tendrils over to Kagerou to get her to relative safety. Gamma-95, however, takes a tactical approach --- she makes more Mini-Descos, but these ones are set to do remote observation from whatever hiding spots they can find.
[21:16] *** Architect repair-drones are scuttling all over the place in large numbers now, and quite a few of them are scurrying out of the Fabricator and into the seas outside. Something really bad is going on here!! Investigate further?
[21:18] * Indeed we should. Ionia-33 takes the helm for this one, producing a few Mini-Descos of her own to follow the drones.
[21:19] *** Many of the repair drones are headed for the hulk of the "Rock You Like a Hurricane" Power is beginning to flicker inside the ship. It's being REPAIRED!!!
[21:20] *** You also find assembly hangars where fully-automated submersible warships are being rapidly built. Crap! THESE must be what were detected closing in on the Island!
[21:22] *** Finally, in large hall containing big cylindrical fabrication capsules running down the middle, the liquid medium inside each tank is almost opaque with raw particulate materials being used to create whatever's inside.
[21:24] * The Descos quickly send this information back to the others. They NEED to learn about this.
[21:26] * Kagerou Imaizumi feels herself being pulled and dragged.
[21:29] * Viola-10 makes a "shush" gesture to Kagerou, indicating that she's here to help.
[21:33] <Kagerou Imaizumi> o___O
[21:35] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR NOW SINCE I NEED TO BE GETTING TO BED. We'll pick things up again tomorrow evening, so tune in then!
[21:36] *** Until then, I hope everyone has a good evening.
[19:53] *** And we're back!
[19:56] * Alldrogis Valkyvida continues to swim rapidly downwards, trying to evade fire as the alien submarines continue their attack.
[19:57] *** Another submarine explodes as it's struck by several torpedoes, while at the same time Albacore yelps as her mount is struck by a blue-green beam-laser that shears the rear third of it off.
[19:59] * Yusa-44 and Zepp-82 lend their assistance with Desco-eye-beams, whilst Queen-01 subtly directs Mini-Descos to find ambush spots. When the time is right, they'll pop out, latch on, and then comes the BOOM!
[20:01] *** Two more alien submarines are blown up. At the same time, Albacore jumps off of her wrecked mount and GRABS onto the last alien sub!!
[20:01] <Albacore> Gotcha!!
[20:01] * Capt. David O`Cain is still leading the fleet of freshly fixed and rearmed kansen towards the theater of operations while he, Megan, and his crew are onboard the Queen's Bounty
[20:02] * Albacore is clutching something in her left hand and she brandishes it like a dagger, preparing to stab. It's one of her own torpedoes!!
[20:03] * Albacore drives the torpedo into the top of the alien sub's hull and is immediately engulfed by the explosion that rips the entire top of the submarine OFF...but severely damages her as well!
[20:05] <Faria-02> ....probably not one of her best ideas.
[20:06] * Albacore rapidly sinks down...the left side of her body ravaged and ripped apart. She gives a thumbs-up with her right hand as she sinks.
[20:06] <I-58> Maybe not, but...
[20:07] * I-58 slows to a halt beside Faria-02. Dang, she's been damaged pretty badly - both of her legs were severed by a beam-laser below her knees.
[20:08] <I-58> Our weapons are almost depleted now.
[20:09] *** As if to emphasize this, there are a series of multiple explosions in the distance, closely followed by the death-screech of the other Shadow Leviathan.
[20:19] *** Meanwhile, on the surface, the fleet with the Queen's Bounty is passing the Island and entering the sea to the south. All of the Kansen assigned to escort the ship slow down as they await their orders.
[20:20] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - All right. To all forces... -
[20:20] * Capt. David O`Cain awaits orders
[20:20] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Queen's Bounty, how much damage are you still dealing with? -
[20:21] <Capt. David O`Cain> Queen's Bounty is patched up, and armed with heavy duty s[BLEEP]t.
[20:24] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Good. Remain near the rear of the engagement area. I need you to act as a comm relay and local command node. -
[20:25] <Donovan O`Cain> Pack 3-6 here. All current Airwolves are repaired, and resupplied. Skyhawks are 99% done with theirs last I checked.
[20:25] <Capt. David O`Cain> Understood, Antil.
[20:27] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Kansen of Northern Parliament, Vichya Dominion, and Dragon Empery...remain near the Queen's Bounty to act as a reserve force. -
[20:28] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Eagle Union and Royal Navy...hold back near the Island and maintain watch on the Frozen Leviathan. IF that thing breaks free we'll need to strike at it immediately. -
[20:29] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Sakura Empire, deploy along the eastern edge of the Island. Make certain nothing else attempts to attack from that zone. -
[20:29] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> DA! You got it, comrade shikikan!
[20:30] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Iris Libre, Sardegna Empire, and Ironblood...engage those ships!! -
[20:32] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Command units of all forces, I am granting you conditional independence. You have operational command over your forces and free initiative to react to any changes barring any commands I give. -
[20:33] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - NOT use carrier-drones. Withhold ALL drones until I give the order to launch. -
[20:35] <Enterprise> ...
[20:35] <Kaga> <__<;
[20:35] <Illustrious> :<
[20:37] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - girls are the ONLY ones with defensive shields. -
[20:37] * Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) sounds reluctant now.
[20:38] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - You will need to function as vanguard units. Stay ahead of Iris Libre and Sardegna Empire to act as a shield as you all close the distance with the xeno contacts. -
[20:41] <Bismarck> ...
[20:41] <Bismarck> >:D
[20:41] <Bismarck> Understood! We will not hesitate or fail!
[20:44] * Bismarck grins wildly as she holds aloft the banner of Eisenblut. "SISTERS!! Finally we are called to directly serve the VATER and his son!!! No matter the command, let us serve them with PRIDE!!!!!"
[20:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hope it works, man. I think we're gonna need a lotta luck.
[20:46] <Prinz Eugen> And so begins the opening scene of my epic movie to Father!
[20:47] <Michelle O`Cain> Yeah, Antil. Let's not stroke their ego too much.
[20:50] <Tirpitz > I'm going to take Vater's love and just BATHE in it when this is all over!! :D
[20:51] <Koln> I think I'll just cook the greatest meal he's ever known, just for him in celebration of our victory.
[20:52] *** Ironblood meanwhile assumes formation, moving ahead of everyone else and keeping a short distance in front of them all.
[20:56] *** And in the distance are the xeno ships, which have begun to accelerate. And one of them has begun to launch fighters!
[21:03] *** The sea battle is about to commence.
[21:03] *** And down below...
[21:05] * Alldrogis Valkyvida sees something ahead further down. It's an archway of dark material that stands out starkly from the red substrates that make up the lower levels surrounding the Fabricator, and the bright green glow of a force-shield shines brightly in the gloom!
[21:06] * Alldrogis Valkyvida aims for the archway. Suddenly, U-556 pulls up alongside him!
[21:07] <U-556> Grab on!
[21:08] * Alldrogis Valkyvida grabs onto the side of U-556's Shark, then has to cling even tighter as she overcharges the propulsion system and shoots towards the archway at high speed!!!!
[21:11] *** The archway looms ahead, then they all SHOOT through the shield keeping out the water and emerge inside, immediately hitting the cold, hard floor with a shower of sparks as there's no water to slow them down!
[21:11] *** The Fabricator has finally been reached!
[21:12] *** And pause here for the night. I won't be able to get on tomorrow, so we'll continue on Monday evening. Take care until then and good night to you all.

[23:38] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte blinks, finding herself sitting in a velvet chair.....the sound of soft engines in the background.......
[23:38] <?> welcome...comfy?
[23:39] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte looks over.......two women sit across from dress in a red velvet coat, frilled shirt and neat pants...her long brown hair cascade down her shoulders, part of which hides half her face...she sips a drink
[23:40] * the other is dressed in a mix of armor and a military uniform...her bright red hair is tied back in a long braid..her blue-green eyes are steely and sharp....
[23:40] <Brown Haired Woman> so I suppose you're coming with us tonight then?
[23:41] <Red Haired Woman> meh I don't understand why we need an extra hand here....we've done these travels multiple times now
[23:41] <Brown Haired Woman> yes but never at the behest of someone so......notible...
[23:42] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I actually thought I'd be doing this by myself too...
[23:42] *** a strange creature...a ghoul like humanoid walks by, pushing a cart of food..he stops at the three.....the two women signal their disinterest...
[23:42] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> um no thanks
[23:43] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> I was aware are we in...
[23:43] <Brown Haired Woman> the dream lands....some people call it the Dream World...I guess others call it The Dreaming...
[23:44] <Red Haired Woman> I'm Minerva..she's Megan....
[23:44] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> yes well..Kaelyn....I was told to come here.....
[23:44] *** the engine sound changes....
[23:44] <Brown Haired Woman> I think we're going to land....
[23:45] * Brown Haired Woman sets aside her tea cup
[23:45] <Brown Haired Woman> we better get ready then

[19:24] *** And we're back!!
[19:25] *** The Sea-Dolls of Ironblood accelerate ahead of everyone, putting more distance ahead of the Sardegna Empire and Iris Libre girls.
[19:29] * Capt. David O`Cain has the Queen's Bounty hold position, and a female Ranger climbs up to the crow's nest
[19:31] <~> /FLADH Carabiniere to Bismarck! I can see a lot of heat being generated by your Rig.
[19:33] <~> Richelieu to Bismarck, I can confirm. Your heat sinks are not functioning properly. You're going to suffer serious problem if you engage directly in battle.
[19:34] <Bismarck> ...
[19:35] <Donovan O`Cain> Antil, where do want the Airwolf packs to go?
[19:35] * Bismarck runs a systems check. Her Rig's repairs were rushed. She ran a jury-rigged quick-fix herself and the repairs didn't completely take. As it is, the fusion air-ram propulsion system is overheating.
[19:36] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Keep them near the Island to act as a rapid-reserve force. -
[19:38] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Once Ironblood, Sardegna Empire, and Iris Libre engage those xenos-ships, we'll have a better idea of their capabilities and adjust our tactics accordingly. Basically I'm following the doctrines of the Codex Astartes and ad-libbing them for naval combat. -
[19:39] <Donovan O`Cain> And the Skyhawks?
[19:41] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Same plan. Hold them in reserve and prepare to commit on my order. Once the Kansen engage, I'll call in the Skyhawks to engage. Once the Skyhawks have expended their munitions, I'll have them withdraw and call in the Airwolves to continue the pressure. -
[19:42] <Donovan O`Cain> Understood.
[19:43] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - That's why I ordered Sakura Empire to hold position off the eastern coast of the Island. If reinforcements are needed for either Ironblood's group or Eagle Union's, they're in a location where they can reinforce either. -
[19:45] <~> Nagato here. That is actually a decent strategy. Is that why all Carrier-girls are refraining from launching?
[19:48] * Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) thinks for a moment, pondering his response to this. Father made him read so many things over the years, from the Codex Astartes, which was originally written by Roboute Guilliman himself, to the various volumes of the Tactica Imperialis
[19:48] * Cpl. Higgins gets out a pair of MKA issued binoculars given to her, and begins to scan the horizon
[19:48] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) > - In the Tactica Imperialis it says “A good soldier obeys without question. A good officer commands without doubt.” -
[19:49] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) > - The drones will remain unlaunched on hot-standby in order to provide massed concentrated firepower at a critical moment. -
[19:50] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) > - If Ironblood and the others need even more help, the drones will hit them with everything and hopefully overwhelm them with targets. -
[19:51] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) > - If the Nurgle Leviathan breaks free, the drones will target specific areas on its body identified as vital and make surgical strikes. -
[19:52] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) > - Either way, the Carrier-girls will serve as a Killing Blow if and when we need it most. -
[19:54] * Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) looks over at his Father, standing nearby.
[19:54] * Solarchos shrugs
[19:55] <Solarchos> You're in full command. Overall I don't find any fault in your strategy. And like you said..."command without doubt."
[20:03] * Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) nods.
[20:04] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Furthermore, I am uploading additional fleet movements to all battlegroups now. -
[20:06] *** Eagle Union and Royal Navy receive their new repositions. All of the Battleship and Battlecruiser girls quickly move further south towards the shore of the Island.
[20:17] *** Northern Parliament, Vichya Dominion, and Dragon Empery receive orders to position their Battleship and Battlecruiser models further back to be better screened.
[20:19] * Sovetskaya Rossiya looks at Belarussiya and Gangut, and nods to them as she moves backwards some
[20:23] *** Sakura Empire also receives orders and repositions their Battleship-girls, as well as their Destroyer-girls.
[20:30] *** Finally...visual range is achieved! The alien ships are relatively large, with wide, angular profiles and lots of weapon turrets on the tops and sides of their wedge-like hulls. The hull material is a dark grey, with lines of dark glowing green running along their lengths.
[20:37] <Scharnhorst> Targets spotted!
[20:39] <Deutschland> Ja! Oh how I long to destroy something and not hold back!
[20:42] <UMP-45> Hey.
[20:42] <UMP-45> I've got a question. What do WE do on the Island in the meantime?
[20:47] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Alldrogis apparently has a plan. Make ready for his signal. Once he transmits it get ready for new orders. -
[20:48] * Cpl. Higgins is still looking around from the crow's nest of the Queen's Bounty
[20:51] *** A strange deep buzzing sound comes from the south. The xenos ships are aware of enemy contacts swiftly approaching!
[20:53] *** Suddenly...multiple flashes start continuously flickering from the weapon turrets of the ships! THEY'RE FIRING!!!
[20:55] * Prinz Eugen raises an eyebrow as multiple projectiles impact against her shields.
[20:56] <Prinz Eugen> Oh my, we're being fired upon!
[20:56] <Admiral Hipper> At least YOUR defenses are in better shape than mine!
[20:57] <Tirpitz> My Rig's still missing weapons because of that Ork!!
[20:59] * Prinz Heinrich yelps as an autocannon blast penetrates her defenses and takes a chunk out of her arm. "OW!! That hit hard!"
[21:02] <Gneisenau> The enemy ships are firing upon us with combination of 30mm depleted-uranium autocannon rounds and blue-green frequency pulse-lasers. Overall level of weapon technology appears to be less advanced compared to Eisenblut capabilities.
[21:04] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Bismarck, Littorio, and Champagne...I'm giving you Independent command of your respective forces. Engage how you see fit for maximum effectiveness. -
[21:06] <Littorio> Eccellente!
[21:07] <Champagne> Time to make them eat the fudge! >:D
[21:09] *** And pause here for the night. Tomorrow...MORE BATTLE! And feel free to get epic!
[19:15] *** And we're BAAAAAAAAAACK (finally)!!!!
[19:17] *** The girls of Eisenblut continue to press their attack, accelerating to maximum speed and weaving back and forth as they fire, trying to avoid the bursts of tracer fire and pulse-lasers aimed their way by the alien ships.
[19:18] <Bismarsk> All sisters, keep firing! Close to point-blank range and engage them amidships!!
[19:18] * Capt. David O`Cain is still waiting orders as the Queen's Bounty port side guns are aimed at the battle
[19:25] * Mainz and Deutschland streak forward, skimming over the water alongside one of the alien "destroyers" and firing all of their weapons continuously, blasting it over and over again as they rocket past.
[19:26] <Deutschland> Minor damage! I can see some fires burning on the hull!
[19:27] <Mainz> Return fire against us is diminishing!
[19:28] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - You're at point-blank range and you're right on top of that ship. The other ships may be trying to avoid hitting one of their own. -
[19:29] *** One of the destroyer-girls cries out suddenly!
[19:31] <Z-35> Z-35 here! I just took an autocannon burst to my rig! Two of my thrusters are down! I'm losing speed!
[19:34] *** Anyone watching will see that one of Ironblood's aspiring idol-girls is now being fired upon by several autocannons now. Tracer rounds streak past her or impact into the water, and more and more of them are coming closer to her as her speed drops to a fraction of what it was a few seconds ago. One of her weapon-arms is blown off, and her shield emitters burst under the strain
[19:35] <Z-35> I'm taking more fire! Somebody...!!
[19:37] * Z-35 cries out loudly as over a dozen 30mm bullets tear through her, shredding part of her body and blowing her Rig to pieces.
[19:37] *** Z-35 has left #suburbansenshi3 (>>Signal lost<<)
[19:38] * Cpl. Higgins lowers her binocular, "Crap..."
[19:38] *** The enemy fleet continues to steam forward, continuing to return fire.
[19:39] *** One of the largest of the ships turns its prow towards the island. A pair of large turrets on the foredesk power up and start to orient towards the Island.
[19:40] <Cpl. Higgins> Captain! Enemy ships aiming at Base Island!
[19:41] * Capt. David O`Cain turns to his crew, and barks out, "ALL HANDS TO STATIONS!"
[19:41] *** The other large ship begins opening a long series of hatches on its topdeck. Moments later, SWARMS of drones start firing up into the air.
[19:46] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Graf Zeppelin, Peter Strasser, and Weser...launch fighters! -
[19:50] *** Ironblood's Carrier-girls launch all of their drones, configuring them for Anti-aircraft mode.
[19:52] <Littorio> /FLASH Sardegna Empire and Iris Libre both have Carriers. Shall we have them launch as well?
[19:53] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Not yet. Let Ironblood's drones engage first so we can gauge their strength. -
[19:54] *** As you all watch, dozens upon dozens of minute flashes and small explosions begin to blossom in the sky as the drones of both side begin to fight.
[19:55] *** Libeccio has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Locking on with missiles. I..." >>Signal lost<<)
[19:57] *** Pola has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Zara!! I'm hit! Railgun turret on that cruiser!" >>Signal lost<<)
[19:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> Antil, they're getting trashed out there!
[19:59] *** Le Temeraire has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Armor breached! I...!" >>Signal lost<<)
[20:00] *** Jeanne d'Arc has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Look out! Their cruisers have rear turrets!" >>Signal lost<<)
[20:01] * Bismarck forms up alongside several other Battleship and Battlecruiser-class Girls and begin to take aim.
[20:02] <Bismarck> Preparing to fire upon the Xenos Carrier!
[20:03] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> /ANST Override. Concentrate fire on the Destroyer I'm designating.
[20:04] <Odin> What? I don't...
[20:04] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Don't question! Do it!! -
[20:05] <Bismarck> ...
[20:06] <Bismarck> Acknowledging. Targeting the designated vessel.
[20:07] * Below the water, multiple Descos gather, watching, moving, planning...................... and then strike at the enemy carries from below! If any of the Sea-Dolls happen to begin sinking, there are enough Descos here to retrieve them.
[20:08] * Bismarck , Odin, Friedrich der Grosse, Littorio, Zara, and Champagne open fire with their heaviest weapons!
[20:09] *** Crap! That Xenos Carrier isn't unguarded as the Destroyers start launching torpedoes into the water that quickly dive downwards to attack the Descos!
[20:11] * Capt. David O`Cain is awaiting any orders to come his way
[20:11] *** But...!! One of the Destroyers is struck by a barrage of railgun and hypervelocity cannons blasts that strike it with such force that it's pushed almost onto its side by the force of the impact!! Secondary explosions engulf it, sending fragments of itself flying far and wide!!
[20:11] <Bismarck> AGAIN!!
[20:12] * Bismarck and the others fire a second salvo, striking the damaged Destroyer. Then...
[20:12] *** The destroyer detonates SPECTACULARLY.
[20:13] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Moon Kingdom forces, send in the first wave of Skyhawks to attack those ships! -
[20:15] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Ironblood contingent, concentrate fire on those Destroyers. I've been monitoring the drone-battle and I've noticed that it's the Destroyers that seem to have the most anti-aircraft weaponry. Eliminate them as quickly as you can! -
[20:16] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Bearn and Aquila...launch drones to support the ones Ironblood launched. -
[20:17] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Queen's Bounty...prepare to engage that Xenos Battleship. -
[20:18] <Capt. David O`Cain> We're standing by!
[20:19] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Vichya Dominion, Dragon Empery, and Northern Parliament...ENGAGE! -
[20:19] * Flight Team Razor and Flight Team Raptor take off, and race towards the Xenos ships
[20:20] * The Descos quickly work to disperse the torpedoes that head their way..... and above the water, one of the cannon's munitions comes FLYING towards the Xenos Ships!
[20:20] *** Giulio Cesare has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Destroyer #2 is struck! I don't think..." >>Signal lost<<)
[20:21] *** Zara has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Watch out for that battleship!!" >>Signal lost<<)
[20:23] *** A brief flash of green covers both the Carrier and Battleship as the munitions strike...and explode against both ship's barrier shields.
[20:23] <Admiral Hipper> Awwww, they've got shields too!
[20:24] *** Emile Bertin has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Missiles away...Destroyer #2 struck hard!! I..." >>Signal lost<<)
[20:25] *** Another Xenos Destroyer detonates HARD, like something out of a Maximum the Touhou concert!
[20:26] <Forbin> Weak spot! Weak spot! Weak spot!! Our torpedo spread struck it directly in the stern!!
[20:27] *** Forbin has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Hit them directly along their 180-degree axis!" >>Signal lost,,)
[20:28] *** There was a BIG explosion as the Xenos Battleship fired a broadside of what appear to be dozens of fire-linked hypervelocity cannons!
[20:29] *** L'Opinaitre has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Stay out of that thing's side firing arc!" >>Signal lost<<)
[20:29] *** Two more Destroyers detonate spectacularly. WOW, THAT LAST ONE PRACTICALLY FLIPPED OVER IN MIDAIR!!!
[20:31] * The Descos decide to try something a little different. They go to manipulate the very water around them, to make the Xenos' Torpedoes go back after the very ships that fired them!
[20:32] <Bismarck> To all cousins in Iris Libre and Sardegna Empire! Fall back. Most of us still have shield generators on us. We'll engage from close range and absorb worst of their fire.
[20:33] * Flight Team Razor and Flight Team Raptor employ Hawk bombs, Maverick Air-to-Surface missiles, and Phoenix Air-to-Air missiles in their attack runs in addition to their 25mm cannons
[20:33] *** Meanwhile, Roon is blasting the HELL out of that Xenos Battleship, pounding it over and over and over again with her plasma cannons...and laughing INSANELY.
[20:35] *** Razor Flight and Raptor Flight...anti-aircraft fire from the Xenos fleet is LIGHT! Maybe one of the Destroyers is in any position to shoot back. The other two are trying to fend off other attackers.
[20:35] *** It looks like Chibi-AnTil's observations were accurate.
[20:38] * Flight Team Razor and Flight Team Raptor continue their attacks while the Queen's Bounty is awaiting orders
[20:41] *** Those shields are still preventing any missiles from getting through, but you notice something else! While the shields are UP the Xenos Battleship does NOT shoot any of its weapons.
[20:42] *** The same goes for the Carrier.
[20:43] <Z-46> Did you see that?
[20:43] *** Z-46 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("They're not shooting when..." >>Signal lost<<)
[20:44] * Tirpitz shrieks as she takes a direct hit that rips her entire left side into confetti.
[20:45] *** Z-24 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Father! I'm scared!" >>Signal lost<<)
[20:46] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Descos! What's happening underneath those ships while their shields are raised? -
[20:48] * The Descos make a quick observation.
[20:50] *** Interesting. The Battleship and Carrier are still moving at the same speed as before, and the water isn't being disrupted or displaced by any shield emitters, meaning that the shields DON'T extend down underwater...or at least do so only at a very minimum level
[20:53] * A Desco, coded as Kaiser-06, responds.
[20:54] <Kaiser-06> No water displacement.... the shielding is much weaker below the ship.
[20:57] * Prinz Eugen watches as the last of the Sardegnans and Iris Libre girls retreat. Looking around, she sees that the drone-battle is still raging, but it looks like the Xenos drones are being whittled down slowly.
[20:57] <Prinz Eugen> Hipper, how are you doing?
[21:04] <Admiral Hipper> I'm fine no thanks to our dumb commander. He may be Father's son but that doesn't make him any less dumb!
[21:05] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Engage those ships from below. Let's see if their defenses really are weaker from that angle. -
[21:05] <Prinz Heinrich> I like him! :D
[21:06] * Capt. David O`Cain is keeping an eye and ear out as does Cpl. Higgins
[21:07] <Prinz Eugen> I'm concerned for Bismarck. She's firing her weapons constantly. Normally not a problem but...her Rig isn't dissipating the heat properly. It's heating up more and more!
[21:09] *** Insert cutscene of Bismarck skidding past the last of the Destroyers, bellowing at the top of her lungs as she keeps firing into it over and over with railguns and missiles. Steam is pouring off of the barrels of the railguns and heat shimmer is radiating off of them and the heat-vents of her Rig like haze off of asphalt in the Mohave Desert.
[21:12] * Kaiser-06 nods, and has three other Descos join her for an underwater assault. A combination of mini-Descos and some eye-beams should start things off with a BANG!
[21:13] *** The Carrier is knocked upwards a few inches by the force of the impact! That did something!
[21:15] <Prinz Eugen> She's behaving almost irrationally. She's never this aggressive.
[21:17] <Prinz Heinrich> Maybe to impress Father?
[21:19] * Kaiser-06 sees it worked, and relays this to AnTil. She's getting some ideas of what to do next....
[21:19] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - I have a few ideas too. Yours first. -
[21:22] *** Actually, pause here for the night since it's late on my end. We'll continue where we left off tomorrow evening.
[21:23] *** Take care, good night, and thank you for joining in!

[22:34] *** Matsumi Kaze [] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[22:34] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Matsumi Kaze
[22:34] * Matsumi Kaze is fast asleep in a chair inside Magistra's TARDIS..snoring away
[22:34] * Azusa looks absolutly bored out of her skull
[22:35] <Azusa> when are we laaaaaanding :(
[22:35] <Matsumi Kaze> zzzzzzz
[22:36] * Azusa glances around to see if Magistra is anywhere...
[22:37] * The Magistra is reading something from a holo-sceen
[22:39] <Azusa> when are we landing...
[22:40] <The Magistra> Hmm? Wait we didn't already?
[22:41] <Azusa> we did? :O
[22:41] * The Magistra goes and opens the door, looking outside
[22:46] * The TARDIS has landed apperently near a tree just outside a very large arena
[22:46] <The Magistra> ....Well it's not home but it's somewhere
[22:47] <Azusa> :O where are we??
[22:52] <The Magistra> No idea. Go wake Matsumi and we'll go find out
[22:54] * The Magistra runs some quick tests to find out when and where they are.
[22:55] * Azusa runs over to her big sister and starts to push her, trying to wake her up
[22:56] * The TARDIS has landed in 708 BCE, Olympia
[22:58] <Matsumi Kaze> huh wha...wha..
[22:58] * Matsumi Kaze yawns and scratches her butt ><
[22:59] <The Magistra> We're in Greece
[23:00] <Matsumi Kaze> huh Greece?
[23:00] * Matsumi Kaze stands stumbling a bit
[23:00] <Matsumi Kaze> thought we were heading home..
[23:01] <The Magistra> Well that was the plan. Something must have gone wrong. That or my senses have gone out of whack
[23:02] <The Magistra> We're in Olympia, about 60 after the first Olympic games, give or take a few
[23:03] <The Magistra> Nothing of note happened this year in recorded history
[23:04] <Matsumi Kaze> mmmm maybe we could get a little break here then...
[23:05] <The Magistra> Probably. If we're lucky we could catch some games
[23:05] <Azusa> olympic games???
[23:07] <Matsumi Kaze> they're special games...played every four years on Earth
[23:08] <The Magistra> The've been held since antiquity in some form, though in modern day it's more like every 2, with the winter and summer events alternating, though that's a recent development
[23:10] <Matsumi Kaze> we should probably...dress the part I guess
[23:13] <The Magistra> Bed-sheets for everyone!
[23:13] * The Magistra is joking.
[23:14] * Matsumi Kaze heads off with Azusa to the warddrobe room (if there is one)
[23:15] * The Magistra has one, it's alot more limited then her dad's though
[23:23] * Matsumi Kaze and Azusa return in more ancient greek style garb...though Azusa doesn't seem..enthuastic about her's
[23:24] * The Magistra changed as well while they were gone and gestures to the door "Shall we?"
[23:25] <Matsumi Kaze> let's!
[23:27] * The Magistra heads out
[23:27] *** The Magistra [] has left #suburbansenshi3
[23:28] *** Matsumi Kaze [] has left #suburbansenshi3
[23:29] *** Azusa has left #suburbansenshi3

[01:33] *** on another another universe...
[01:34] * Minori Tatsumaki sits up in bed and grumbles..before walking over to her bedroom window and looking out at the night sky...
[01:34] * Minori Tatsumaki frowns to herself, looking up at the moon
[01:34] * Freya yawns and streaches then looks over
[01:34] <Freya> ...Minori?
[01:34] * Freya pads over to Minori and hops onto her shoulder
[01:35] * Minori Tatsumaki frowns to herself...grumbling to herself...
[01:35] <Freya> ...what's wrong? aren't normally like this
[01:35] <Minori Tatsumaki> I'm fine just.....
[01:35] <Minori Tatsumaki> ...
[01:35] * Minori Tatsumaki grabs Freya and hugs her tightly...
[01:36] * Freya blinks..then glances up at Minori...and blinks again..but sighs and rubs her face against the teenage girl's.....trying to calm her
[01:36] <Freya>'s alright's alright...

[19:42] *** And noooooooooooooow!!! Again, sorry for the delay last night, but it was unavoidable at work...
[19:44] *** The battle continues to rage, with the Seadolls POUNDING nonstop on the Xenos Carrier and Battleship, their missiles, railgun shards, and lasers impacting harmlessly against the shields.
[19:45] <Bismarck> Death and damnation!!! Ironblood has come for you, vile monsters!!
[19:45] * the Forest and Tundra Kits are providing FLOOOOOOOOOOF
[19:46] *** The refugee children can certainly use the reassurance of the FLOOF
[19:46] <Z-23> Bismarck!! What's wrong with your Rig?!
[19:47] * Z-23 is looking at Bismarck and can see that something is VERY wrong with it. The heat exchanger vents on the rear of her Rig and barrels of her cannons are starting to glow
[19:48] <Capt. David O`Cain> Bismarck! Cease fire! I say again, CEASE FIRE! You're severely overheating! I can see it from the Queen's Bounty!
[19:50] <Bismarck> Ignore me! Concentrate on this beast of a Battleship!
[19:51] *** The Carrier's upper arc shields drop. A few seconds later a SECOND wave of drones erupt into the air!
[19:51] *** The Battleship's shields drop!
[19:52] <Bismarck> It's preparing to fire! Engage now!!! Do not...!!
[19:52] * Flight Team Raptor spots the openings, and split up to make their attack runs, two going for the carrier while the other pair heads for the battleship
[19:53] * Bismarck 's sentence is drowned out by the enormous CRACKS of her cannons firing, and the electrical discharge of her railguns firing almost overload her radio!
[19:53] * Flight Team Razor provide cover for Raptor's run
[19:54] * Bismarck 's railguns should NOT be discharging electricity like that! Her Rig must be malfunctioning worse than anyone realizes!
[19:55] *** The Battleship's multi-barreled AA cannons fire upon the incoming Skyhawks, ranging ladar illuminating the incoming craft to enhance accuracy.
[19:56] <Gneisenau> It's firing! Evade!
[19:57] * Scharnhorst howls as an autocannon burst blows off one of her legs in mid-thigh and sends her cartwheeling.
[19:57] *** Scharnhorst has left #suburbansenshi3 ("GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH~!!" >>Signal lost<<)
[19:57] *** Z-1 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH~!" >>Signal lost<<)
[19:58] * Flight Team Razor and Raptor juke and jive as both teams fire their 25mm cannons, and then Flight Team Raptor quickly drop Hawk Bombs on their targets
[19:58] *** Karlsruhe has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Remember us fondly, little foxes... T___T" >>Signal lost<<)
[20:00] * From below the waters, multiple laser shots rise up to attack the Xeno cruisers from below! Also there is a salvo of missiles headed towards the Xeno Cruisers as well!
[20:00] <Peter Strasser> I'm hit! My Rig has taken severe damage! Shields are down to 25%! I must withdraw!
[20:01] <Prinz Eugen> One of my weapon sets has been wrecked. Firepower reduced by 40%
[20:02] *** The bombs fall...and explode MIGHTILY across the topdecks of both ships.
[20:03] *** Both the Carrier and the Battleship rock from the impacts they take from above and below. There's a secondary explosion on the Carrier near its stern - one of those last beams hit something important!!
[20:04] *** The last of the Xenos fleet's escorts EXPLODES thunderously!!
[20:06] *** Something explodes on the Battleship's exterior too. Both it and the Carrier raise shields again, but the arc on the Battleship's starboard side DON'T engage!
[20:07] *** Skyhawks, you've also expended ALL of your munitions, and those new Xenos-drones are approaching FAST. They're exceptionally fast, but seem to lack maneuverability.
[20:07] <Prinz Eugen> Do you see that!? The Battleship's starboard shields did NOT activate!
[20:08] <Friedrich der Grosse> The last salvo must have damaged the emitter!
[20:08] * Flight Team Raptor and Flight Team Razor quickly head back to base for reload and refuel while Flight Teams Eagle and Falcon come in to deal with the drones
[20:08] *** The Battleship starts to turn to the right, turning AWAY from the island!!
[20:09] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> ...
[20:09] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - New orders. All Carries...LAUNCH DRONES!!! -
[20:10] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Airwolves, begin your approach. Keep in formation with the drones. -
[20:10] *** Meanwhile EVERY Carrier-girl of Azur Lane, from Enterprise to the Kansen of the Sakura Empire's 1st Carrier Division, launch everything they have.
[20:11] <Donovan O`Cain> Copy that, Antil. Packs are enroute
[20:11] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> /ANST Battleship-girls, arm weapons and stand by. Remain stationary and update your positions.
[20:12] * Donovan O`Cain leads Pack 36 as a few more Packs join the flight
[20:12] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Cannons ready, comrade Shikikan!
[20:13] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - All drones and Airwolves, set course towards the Battleship. Approach towards the PORT side of the ship. I repeat...PORT SIDE. -
[20:13] * Sovetskaya Rossiya and her comrades remain near the Queen's Bounty
[20:13] <Donovan O`Cain> Understood. Heading to Battleship's port side.
[20:14] * Donovan O`Cain and the other Airwolves in the air hit their jets, and race towards the Xenos Battleship
[20:14] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Ironblood and remaining Iris Libre and Sardegna Empire girls....keep attacking the Battleship's STARBOARD side! Don't let up! -
[20:16] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Vichya Dominion, Dragon Empery, and Northern Parliament...send your destroyer and light cruiser girls to engage the Carrier. Shoot down as many of its Drones as you can. -
[20:16] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Cruiser and higher...move to support Ironblood. STARBOARD SIDE ATTACKS exclusively! -
[20:17] * Grozny and Chapayev head out towards the Carrier along with their comrades, and engage anti-air fire when they get in range
[20:17] <Bismarck> Ironblood!! Interpose yourselves between that Battleship and the others. Protect them from harm for as long as we're able to!
[20:18] *** It'll take several minutes to travel out that far onto the ocean. Meanwhile, the Battleship is continuing to hammer the HELL out of Ironblood and the others!
[20:19] * Sovetskaya Rossiya and the rest of Northern Parliament go after the Battleship
[20:19] *** Z-46 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("ACCKKKKK~!" >>Signal lost<<)
[20:19] * From out of nowhere a round of ammo from the containment cannons comes hurtling at the battleship!!
[20:19] *** Z-25 has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Noooooooooooo! I wanted to see Father again!!!" >>Signal lost<<)
[20:20] *** Z-21 has left #suburbansenshi3 (>:[ *Kuudere vibes detected * >>Signal lost<<)
[20:20] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D :3 :3 :D :D
[20:21] *** The Battleship ROCKS as it's struck, and a few secondary explosions ring out as something else breaks down.
[20:22] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Forces of Sakura Empire...BEGIN MOVING IN TO SUPPORT THE OTHERS. -
[20:22] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Airwolves...what is your range? -
[20:24] *** You see the raised shields of the Battleship glowing brightly in the growing darkness. The Battleship's superstructures are lit ominously by the light generated by the raging battle on the other side. Good god, these things are dangerous! Imagine what might happen if MORE of these things exist?!
[20:25] <Donovan O`Cain> 3 clicks out.
[20:26] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Keep on approach. Dispersed formation. Has the Battleship begun firing on you? -
[20:28] * Bismarck meanwhile joins some of her sisters and cousins in concentrating fire on one of the big side turrets and watches as it finally detonates!!
[20:28] <Bismarck> Keep firing! Don't let us!
[20:29] * the Forest and Tundra Kits are providing FLOOOOOOOOOOF again
[20:29] <Admiral Graf Spree> ...Bismarck. Your Rig...
[20:30] <Tirpitz> !!!
[20:30] <Tirpitz> Sister!! Your Rig is at critical heat levels!! Your railguns are starting to MELT!
[20:31] <Tirpitz> If the capacitors are compromised...!
[20:32] <Bismarck> If you cannot retreat I WILL NOT retreat!! I will not dishonor Ironblood's heritage by...
[20:32] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> THERE WPN'T BE FLOOOOOOOOOOOF :O
[20:32] *** There's suddenly a GIGANTIC explosion from the starboard side of the Battleship!
[20:32] *** Bismarck has left #suburbansenshi3 (>>Signal lost<<)
[20:34] <Vittorio Veneto> What was THAT?!?!?!?
[20:35] <Littorio> That was one of Ironblood's Battleships getting hit...
[20:36] <Konigsberg> No! That was Bismarck's Rig exploding!!!
[20:37] <Donovan O`Cain> The hell was that?!
[20:37] <Admiral Hipper> OOOOOOOOWWWWW!!! I was near her! AAHHHH!! MY ARM'S GONE!!!! WHERE'S MY ARM!!??!
[20:38] <Prinz Eugen> Oh, shall I lend you a hand then, sister?
[20:39] * The Descos are scrambling to catch any sunken Sea-Dolls and get them to relative safety.
[20:39] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:40] *** the Forest and Tundra Kits has left #suburbansenshi3 ((>>FLOOOOOOOOOF Signal lost<<))
[20:43] *** The Descos will be finding a lot of Sea-Dolls slowly sinking to the bottom. All of them are heavily damaged. It's almost tragic to see them like this: many of them are quite attractive under normal circumstances, but many of them have been ripped apart.
[20:45] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Keep fighting! Continue approach. Airwolves...has the Battleship started shooting at you yet? -
[20:45] * The Descos will still do everything they can to save whom they can.
[20:45] <Donovan O`Cain> Negative, Antil.
[20:46] *** The Battleship suddenly lowers its PORT-SIDE shields!
[20:48] <Donovan O`Cain> Correction. Port side shield down. Engaging evasion.
[20:48] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Yukari...NOW!! -
[20:49] *** Suddenly...DOZENS of Yukari's portals open several hundred meters away from the port side of the Battleship, and from them emerge...!!
[20:52] *** Holy s[BLEEP]t!! Fusou, Kii, Duke of York, Nagato, Nevada, Oklahoma, New Jersey, Queen Elizabeth, Warspite, California, South Dakota...ALL OF THE BATTLESHIP GIRLS FROM EAGLE UNION, ROYAL NAVY, AND SAKURA EMPIRE HAVE BEEN TELEPORTED!!
[20:52] *** All of them are confused as they find themselves staring right at the Xenos Battleship.
[20:53] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - FIRE! ALL BATTLESHIPS OPEN FIRE!! -
[20:53] <Durand> Heh.
[20:53] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> DA! FIRING!
[20:54] *** The Battleship-girls take aim!!!
[20:54] <New Jersey> Fire control, I'm counting on you!
[20:54] * Sovetskaya Rossiya blasts at the Xenos Battleship with all of her guns
[20:55] <Queen Elizabeth > OFF WITH ITS HEAD!
[20:56] *** All the Battleships FIRE continuously from point-blank range, with the Xenos vessel's weapons unable to respond in time to the new threat that LITERALLY appeared out of nowhere!
[20:57] <Warspite> Direct hits! Multiple direct hits!
[20:59] *** Oh jeez...back on the Island Reisen and the others have been watching the ENTIRE battle as it raged.
[20:59] <Reisen Udongien Inaba> ...
[21:00] * Maximum the Touhou start to play something EPIC as the battle reaches its CLIMAX!!
[21:01] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Battleships! Prepare for second teleport! -
[21:01] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Airwolves...FIRE AT WILL!!! -
[21:02] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Yukari! Second teleport! NOW!! -
[21:03] *** More Yukari-portals open, swallowing all of the Battleship-girls...and depositing them out on the STARBOARD side of the Xenos Battleship, facing it.
[21:05] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - Now...FIRE AT WILL. -
[21:06] *** The Battleship-girls all unleash ANOTHER nonstop barrage of fire from close range, combining their firepower with Ironblood's
[21:06] * Donovan O`Cain and the other Airwolf Packs fire their air-to-surface missiles as they rake with their .50 cal guns and 30mm cannons
[21:09] *** The missiles streak forward...and SLAM into the stricken Xenos Battleships! The ENTIRE port side of the ship is now engulfed in flames, with secondary explosions ringing out every few seconds
[21:10] <Donovan O`Cain> Ship is on fire. I see many explosions going on.
[21:11] *** The other side of the ship is being savaged as well. There's a HUGE explosion that rocks everything near it...and ALL of the Battleship's shields fade!!
[21:14] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - All Kansen and allied forces. Target that Battleship. -
[21:14] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - at will! DON'T GIVE IT A CHANCE TO RECOVER! -
[21:16] * Capt. David O`Cain gives the order for his ship to fire its cannons at the Battleship as the Airwolf Packs continue their firing
[21:17] * Durand lends some aid with ion-charged shots from his pincers!
[21:17] *** Okay, now this is just Ship-Abuse!! That Battleship's getting the crap slapped out of it!
[21:18] *** It starts to list to the side. It's capsizing!!
[21:18] <Prinz Eugen> Oh! Does this mean we Sank Their Battleship?
[21:20] *** The Xenos Battleship EXPLODES!! The force of the detonation CRACKS it into two pieces amidships.
[21:21] *** The Carrier attempts to retreat!!
[21:22] *** The operative word is "ATTEMPTS". It's moving much slower than before thanks to that laser-from-the-deep that blew out part of its propulsion system!
[21:23] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - All submersible forces, target the underside of that Carrier and send it to the bottom. -
[21:26] *** And pause here for the night since it's late on my end as well. I'll catch you all again tomorrow. Please take care and good night for now.
[19:57] *** AND WE ARE BACK!!!!
[19:58] * UMP-45 is nearly knocked out of her chair as the shock wave SLAMS the Seatruck she's piloting.
[19:58] <UMP-9> Whoa!
[19:59] * HK416 meanwhile is putting out a small fire that broke out when some electronics shorted out...and made a Tundra Kit's tail ignite!
[19:59] <HK416> Remind me...WHY are we riding with a bunch of FOXES?!?!?!?!
[20:00] <UMP-45> Because they insisted and that we had to unless we wanted to "Be-a-Kit" again.
[20:01] <HK416> So now they're resorting to blackmail and extortion? They're dangerously cunning.
[20:01] <HK416> No wonder you like them.
[20:02] <Tundra Kit> :3
[20:02] * Tundra Kit another is YPIEING!
[20:03] <Tundra Kit> YIPE YIPE YIPE YIPE
[20:03] * Tundra Kit is swishing its caught on fire tail :<
[20:07] * HK416 uses the fire extinguisher!
[20:07] <UMP-9> What was that explosion anyway?!
[20:07] <UMP-45> Something big on the surface exploding, obviously!! Emphasis on the BIG!
[20:08] <UMP-45> IN fact, our radio's out now! And our IFF!
[20:08] <HK416> That means they've lost our signal! They may think we've been knocked out of this fight!
[20:10] * HK416 suddenly points straight ahead past the main view-window. "LOOK OUT, YOU IDIOT!!!"
[20:11] * UMP-45 quickly wrests the controls and evades a salvo of torpedoes that rocketed upwards from the depths towards the underside of that Xenos Carrier.
[20:12] <Tundra Kit> :O
[20:12] <UMP-9> You're right. We're registering as "Signal lost" now. Well that sucks!
[20:13] <G11> Zzzzzzzzzzzzz
[20:13] <HK416> Why are we even out here?!
[20:13] <Tundra Kit> friends :D
[20:14] <UMP-45> Because those Xenos ships are getting blown to hell and that means salvage!
[20:14] <UMP-45> I have a theory about some of them, so I want to investigate first before anyone else gets a hold of anything. And MAYBE keep some of it for ourselves.
[20:15] <UMP-9> Squad 404 is BACK, baby!
[20:15] <HK416> What Friends are you talking about, little squeaker?
[20:18] * Capt. David O`Cain has given the Xenos fleet the middle finger, "F[BLEEP]K YOU, A[BLEEP]LES!" and draws cheers from Megan and his crew
[20:19] <Forest Kit> Sea emperors:D
[20:19] <HK416> Isn't there just one in this region?
[20:20] *** Topside, the Xenos Carrier ROCKS as the slow-moving torpedoes detonate against its hull and inflict yet more damage!
[20:21] *** Meanwhile, that Battleship continues to burn as it continues to sink lower into the water. Its guns are all silent now, and its shields have failed completely. More and more explosions detonate all over it as the Kansen keep firing upon it.
[20:22] <Forest Kit> noppa, we see lots lots :D
[20:23] *** Mini-missiles from the drones keep hammering it, and with an ear-splitting wail of twisting metal the bisected halves of the Battleship finally tear free of each other.
[20:23] * Forest Kit tears up
[20:24] * HK416 takes another count of how many Forest Kits are with them.
[20:27] * Forest Kit number in the lots lots
[20:30] * Forest Kit s number in the HUNDREDS
[20:33] <HK416> How can so many be in here in THIS LITTLE SPACE?!?!
[20:34] * HK416 tries to calculate. There are several supply cabinets via the Assembly module, and the Storage Module, AND the Sleeper module.
[20:35] <HK416> Plus there's the Aquarium Module that's catching fish as we sail along...
[20:35] <HK416> Wait...what happened to those Arrowfish we caught earlier?
[20:36] * HK416 sees Kits in the storage cabinets, all camped out. And lounging in the storage bins. And curled up inside the single cot...
[20:39] <Forest Kit> :3
[20:40] <UMP-9> Oh, I fed them to the Kits! They were getting hungry.
[20:41] <HK416> We caught like twenty of those fish. You fed them ALL to them?!
[20:41] <UMP-9> We're carrying a LOT of Fuzzies!
[20:43] <Forest Kit> :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:44] <Forest Kit> 30 fish, 5 left :D
[20:45] <Forest Kit> look out for baby sea emperors, they all be friends :D
[20:45] * Forest Kit cries in memory of the Big sea emperor
[20:46] <UMP-9> And they sure seem to love Arrowfish and Nootfish
[20:47] <UMP-45> Wow, look above us!
[20:48] <Forest Kit> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:48] * UMP-45 points overhead through another window. High above, wreckage is slowly sinking downwards as the Xenos Battleship is destroyed.
[20:49] *** It also looks like there's a figure sinking downwards as well.
[20:49] <UMP-45> I think that's one of those Sea-Dolls that got blown away.
[20:50] * HK416 finishes sealing her Hostile Environment Suit. "I'll go retrieve her."
[20:51] * UMP-45 slows to a stop to allow HK416 to go outside. "Little foxes, no going out into the water. Remember, it's NOT healthy for you and I don't want to see you get hurt."
[20:51] <UMP-45> ^__~
[20:52] <Forest Kit> :3
[21:02] * HK416 heads out into the water and swims towards the falling body. "It's Scharnhorst of Eisenblut. She's offline and she's missing a leg but other than that she seems to be all right. I'm bringing her back."
[21:05] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[21:14] * HK416 pulls Scharnhorst back onboard, disengaging her from her Rig before entering the airlock, then drags her over to the cot...and brushing aside some Foxes to make room.
[21:21] *** Scharnhorst is a mess. Her subdermal armor absorbed a lot of damage, but in the process large patches of her flesh were torn away. A quick diagnostic indicates she still has power, so her Core is in "Sleep Mode" for now after sustaining severe structural damage. The Organic term would be "Serious but Stable Condition."
[21:22] <HK416> Well, at least her Core is undamaged and fully operational. I'm not fully certain about the rest of her.
[21:22] <UMP-45> Good, that means we can use her. Or at least SOME of her.
[21:23] <HK416> Huh?
[21:23] <HK416> What EXACTLY are you up to, 45?
[21:24] <UMP-9> Stockpiling high-grade Sangvis Ferri-derived T-Doll parts for ourselves, of course!
[21:24] <Forest Kit> :3
[21:25] <UMP-45> Her Core is undamaged, so in all likelihood they'll just build her an all-new body and install her Core in that, just like how it's done with US.
[21:27] <UMP-45> And since her body is so badly damaged, they probably won't miss any components that go missing. Let's be honest here, 416. You did NOT enjoy the time we spent as Squad 404 outside of G&K.
[21:28] <UMP-45> No OFFICIAL logistics or acknowledgment. Always being the subject of "Plausible Deniability". Granted, the Federation is EXPONENTIALLY better and we don't have to hide or skulk.
[21:29] <UMP-45> But we're a Black Ops group. For all of his niceness, the Governor-Militant isn't dumb or guileless. He'll make use of us...either that or the INQUISITION will do it for him.
[21:30] <UMP-45> Especially the likes of Alldrogis Valkyvida. Or Morrigan Aensland.
[21:30] <UMP-45> So stockpiling repair parts for ourselves that DON'T come from either the Departmento Munitorum or the Mechanicum is in our best interests.
[21:31] <HK416> So you're going behind their backs.
[21:31] <UMP-9> More like...
[21:31] <UMP-9> ...
[21:31] <UMP-9> ...establishing an alternative logistical supply network.
[21:34] <Forest Kit> a network of fluffies :D
[21:39] <HK416> You body-snatching little demons.
[21:40] <UMP-45> Don't be a hypocrite! You know you've used Sangvis Ferri components more than once in the past.
[21:40] <Forest Kit> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[21:41] <UMP-9> She seems reluctant. LITTLE FOXES...>!
[21:41] <UMP-9> Convince her!!
[21:42] <Forest Kit> yuppa :D
[21:42] * Forest Kit start chanting the Be-a-Kit Dance!
[21:45] <HK416> :O
[21:46] <Forest Kit> Be-A-Kit, Be-A-Kit, Be-A-Be-A-Be-A Kit! Be-A-Kit, Be-A-Kit, Be-A-Be-A-Be-A Kit! Be-A-Kit, Be-A-Kit, Be-A-Be-A-Be-A Kit! Be-A-Kit, Be-A-Kit, Be-A-Be-A-Be-A Kit!
[21:46] * Forest Kit start converging on HK416
[21:46] *** Meanwhile, UMP-45 pilots the submarine to the next location while UMP-9 presides over HK416's "convincing" while doing JoJo poses. Just Because.
[21:47] *** And pause here for the night. We'll continue this on Monday since I won't be able to get on tomorrow. Until then, good night and take care everyone.
[19:29] *** And we're back!!
[19:29] *** Back onboard the Subtruck 404...
[19:30] * G11 yawns as she pulls herself out of one of the storage cabinets to a scene of utter INSANITY!!
[19:34] <G11> ....
[19:34] * HK416 is on the ground, writhing and flailing as a few dozen Forest Kits are pouncing and hopping up and down all over her!
[19:35] * UMP-9 is off to the side, singing "Vocal Percussion on a whole 'nother level...coming from my MIND!!" and performing the Torture Dance.
[19:35] * Capt. David O`Cain has the Queen's Bounty move up towards the aftermath of the battle on the ocean surface
[19:36] * UMP-45 is dancing too, and has a Forest Kit draped on each shoulder.
[19:36] <G11> ...what am I watching?
[19:40] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a kittttt!
[19:41] *** On the surface, the last of the Xenos ships are either slowly sinking or have sunk. The Carrier was the last to go, finally succumbing to a series of torpedo salvos fired by a small group of Destroyer-class Kansen from Eagle Union, Royal Navy, and Sakura Empire...and Z-23 too!
[19:51] <Capt. David O`Cain> Down to Davy Jones, you black bilge rats!
[19:54] <UMP-45> No!
[19:54] * SFC Iris Gainsburough raises the Platoon's flag, a skull with crossed rifle and cutlass, underneath the Moon Kingdom's
[19:54] <UMP-45> BORDER=0 Embrace your Fluffy!
[19:55] * Tirpitz slowly approaches. WOW, she's so messed up it's TERRIFYING!! Most of her fleshy outer coating has been ripped away, revealing the cybernetic structures underneath.
[19:56] <Megan O`Cain> A great naval battle has been won.
[19:58] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - I take it I did well? -
[19:59] <Megan O`Cain> Your commands worked, Antil. There were casualties, though.
[20:02] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> - I know, but it could have been much worse. And this WAS a battle. -
[20:02] * Tirpitz stops near the Queen's Bounty.
[20:02] <Tirpitz> Bismarck...
[20:02] <Megan O`Cain> Indeed. We have no idea where those ships came from, though.
[20:03] * Capt. David O`Cain looks over the railing
[20:05] <Tirpitz> Bismarck's rig...exploded.
[20:06] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Embrace the fluffy! >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D
[20:07] <Capt. David O`Cain> I'm sorry...
[20:11] <Tirpitz> she?
[20:11] * HK416 tries to crawl away!!!
[20:11] <UMP-45> Ah, looks like you're finally up, G11. I need you to get to work.
[20:11] <G11> Doing what?
[20:12] <Capt. David O`Cain> I don't know.
[20:13] * UMP-45 points at Scharnhorst, who's laying on the cot. "We're still searching for more damaged Sea-Dolls. While we're doing that, I need you to start analyzing and evaluating anything we can remove from her that WON'T compromise her ability to be reactivated."
[20:13] <G11> ...So you're asking me to cybersnatch her and do so in a way that's not detectable?
[20:18] <G11> ...
[20:20] * G11 looks at Scharnhorst lying there with her perky figure and long hair...
[20:20] <G11> >:D
[20:26] * G11 leers at Scharnhorst and leans in, eager to start cutting away what's left of her clothes and start rooting around inside her inner workings...
[20:27] <Scharnhorst> O___\
[20:27] <G11> !!!
[20:27] * Capt. David O`Cain gets out a pair of binoculars, and tries to look for Bismarck on the surface
[20:27] <UMP-9> !!!
[20:27] <UMP-45> !!!
[20:28] <UMP-45> Oh crap!
[20:30] <Scharnhorst> WER BIST DU? WO BIN ICH? WO IST DER VATER?!
[20:33] <G11> Waitwhat?
[20:36] * HK416 is on her hands and knees, attempting to crawl out from under at least THREE DOZEN Forest Kits all assailing her.
[20:38] <G11> Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhh?!
[20:38] <UMP-9> Wait, what's that about your father?
[20:39] * Scharnhorst suddenly LUNGES at G11 and starts PUMMELLING her viciously!
[20:39] * G11 shrieks as she's grabbed by the much-larger Sea-Doll and is helpless to escape her grasp!!!
[20:39] <G11> AHHHH! HELP! HELP!!!
[20:40] <Capt. David O`Cain> Where is that sauerkraut for brains?
[20:40] * Scharnhorst and G11 roll off the cot and start wrestling and thrashing on the ground, nearly hitting several Forest Kits in the process!
[20:43] <UMP-9> Hey! Stop it! Get off of her!!
[20:43] * Scharnhorst PUNCHES UMP-9 so hard she flies backwards, right into UMP-45, who staggers backwards and only the steering controls...which makes the Seatruck start moving forward again!!!
[20:44] <UMP-9> @___@
[20:44] <UMP-45> D:
[20:44] <G11> - HeLp! ShE's GoT mE iN a SlEePeR hOlD~!!! -

[20:48] <G11> - I cAn'T!!! sHe'S tOo BiG!!! AAaaaaAAAAaaaaAAAAhhh!!! -
[20:50] * HK416 looks up just in time to see Scharnhorst suddenly lean sharply backwards and perform a perfectly-executed German Suplex! WITH G11. And piledrives her head-first into HK416's face!!!
[20:50] <UMP-45> HOLY F[BLEEP]K!!
[20:51] * UMP-45 is still trying to slow the Seatruck down and turns back around to see...
[20:55] * Maia-76 sees the Seatruck coming, and so quickly dodges to a side to avoid getting run down!
[20:57] <Maia-76> Who's driving that thing?!
[21:04] * Capt. David O`Cain keeps on searching for Bismarck
[21:04] *** The Seatruck rams into a Hoopfish instead. WHOA...the expression on that fish's face when it got struck was just EPIC!!!!
[21:09] <Maia-76> .......... 0_0
[21:10] * Maia-76 tries to get a communications line open with the Seatruck.
[21:10] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> O---O
[21:15] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> hiiiiii :D
[21:23] * UMP-45 finally slows the Seatruck down
[21:23] * UMP-45 looks out the front window and sees some Descos closing in.
[21:24] <Maia-76> ........hey, who was driving that thing?
[21:24] * UMP-45 suddenly gets SLAMMED FACE-FIRST into the window as Scharnhorst barrels into her from behind while she continues to beat the HELL out of G11!
[21:24] <UMP-45> X___x
[21:25] <Tundra Kit> hi :D
[21:25] * G11 is screaming incoherently as she's smacked into the window repeatedly!! DX
[21:25] <Scharnhorst> D:<
[21:25] <Tundra Kit> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[21:28] *** And pause here for the night. Tomorrow, we shall return to the DeepDownDarkDeepDown and the Battle of the Fabricator! Until then, good night folks.
[21:28] * HK416 flails around behind Scharnhorst, with a Facehugger Kit firmly clamped to the front of her face.

[23:54] *** Days later from where we last left off, in the underground chamber of the Church
[23:54] * 's eyes are bloodshot
[23:55] * D. Kakaku 's eyes are bloodshot
[23:58] * D. Kakaku 's eeys are bloodshot from the constant holywaterwashing.
[00:00] <D. Kakaku> so much poured in my eyes... can I rest them?
[00:00] <Belona> No.

[18:50] *** one day later
[18:51] *** near the local markets
[18:51] *** D. Kakaku has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:51] <@spiritflame> konbanwa D. Kakaku
[18:51] * D. Kakaku is walking a bit, eyes still blood shot, though the veins are slowly changing color.
[18:52] <D. Kakaku> I feel like I need an optometrist.
[18:54] * Georgia Banno adjusts her glasses
[18:55] <D. Kakaku> so much holy water being poured in your eyes, it doesn't feel good.
[18:58] <Belona> Et idcirco mediae quae tua est awash cum desiderio ... vel peccatum est quarta pars tua?
[19:00] <Belona> Non possum Kakaku aliquid quod iam factum est Kakaku Majorem hac urbe ... sis felix, quia non estis ex genere terreno illius per Cape May acolytus.
[19:01] <D. Kakaku> hey... what is that coming towards us?
[19:01] <Georgia Banno> hm?
[19:02] * D. Kakaku points at a shadow figure... that no one else, except with a certain exception, can see.
[19:03] * D. Kakaku 's veins in his eyes have become blue... as blue as his irises.
[19:04] <Belona> velut umbra præterit? ... non poteris videre? Petere, ut confirmetis in cortina quisquam visus est et novum.
[19:04] * Belona walks up to a bystander, and asks said bystander something`.
[19:05] *** the bystander looks... and shakes his head from left to right, indicating that, no, he does not.
[19:05] * Belona looks.
[19:05] * Belona walks back towards Daniel and Georgia.
[19:06] * Belona points at Georgia "puer puella! vides umbra viventis?"
[19:16] <D. Kakaku> I think she's trying to ask if you see that figure, too.
[19:17] <Georgia Banno> yes..yes I do
[19:19] <Belona> postremo vos questus eam... Daniel
[19:19] <Belona> sed id non continuo vt Cythraul solet.
[19:22] <D. Kakaku> yeah, it doesn't look like what you've been seeing, considering.
[19:23] *** the figure turns towards the three of you, it looks like... looks like.... could one of you have seen something like this figure?
[19:26] <D. Kakaku> I haven't seen anything like that in my whole life, what is that, anyway?
[19:27] *** the figure starts lunging at the three!
[19:30] * Georgia Banno tries to dodge it!
[19:30] <Georgia Banno> i've seen photos...
[19:30] <Georgia Banno> they call them Kouma!
[19:31] <Belona> Kouma?
[19:31] <D. Kakaku> Koma?
[19:33] *** the Kouma turns around.
[19:33] <Belona> Daggar!
[19:34] * Belona pulls out a gun and two daggars, throwing the Daggars to Daniel.
[19:34] * Belona pulls out two vials of Holy water, also tossing one to Daniel.
[19:35] <Georgia Banno> Kouma are weak against spirit energy and holy powers
[19:35] * D. Kakaku catches while tryingto dodge the Kouma "woah woah, what do I do with thee.
[19:36] <Belona> Et intinge dis ut est.
[19:36] * Belona dips a bullet into the holy water and puts it in the gun.
[19:37] * D. Kakaku awkwardly tries dipping the two daggars into the same flask of Holy Water.
[19:38] * Belona aims at the Kouma.
[19:40] <D. Kakaku> almost there, just gotta get these daggars out..
[19:43] * Belona fires at the Kouma.
[19:43] * Georgia Banno keeps out of the way
[19:43] *** The Kouma is hit, but still standing.
[19:44] <Belona> DAGGAR!
[19:44] * D. Kakaku finally gets them out
[19:44] <D. Kakaku> got it.
[19:44] * D. Kakaku moves towards the Kouma with the daggars.
[19:46] * D. Kakaku misses!
[19:47] *** the Kouma mindlessly sidesteps.
[19:47] <Belona> Bullet, Daggar.... SHIELD!
[19:48] <D. Kakaku> Shield? we have no shield!.... unless...
[19:49] <D. Kakaku> Georgia, you have anything to act as a shield?
[19:51] <Georgia Banno> i'm afraid not....
[19:51] <Belona> Maledictiones erat, ideo trifecta non est hic ... cum spe, sed duo et tres ex hoc in Kouma.
[19:52] <Belona> Daniel, ego sagittent iterum: sed non requiro.
[19:52] <D. Kakaku> what?
[19:52] <Belona> Do.... NOT... MISS
[19:54] * Belona Fires another holy water bullet.
[19:55] *** the Kouma is struck again.
[19:55] * D. Kakaku charges again
[19:55] <D. Kakaku> either I put my all into this, or we need that shield!
[19:55] * D. Kakaku Jumps..... a daggar in each hand.
[19:57] *** someone busts out of a storefront door, running out scared.
[19:59] * D. Kakaku gets those daggars in, but gets a bit distracted with the opening of a nearby storefront's door and the person inside running out, screaming about people appearing.

[20:03] <Belona> quod originale sicut in itineribus seniorem iam vidimus?
[20:03] <Belona> ....
[20:04] <Belona> let.. go, Daniel! Exaudi me a gladio!
[20:04] <D. Kakaku> What? something about gladiators?
[20:04] * Belona runs fast... for her advanced age and pulls Daniel off of the Kouma.
[20:05] <Invisible person> It's a Kouma!
[20:05] *** The kouma, with daggars stuck, staggars
[20:06] <D. Kakaku> yup, I think we found that out.
[20:06] <D. Kakaku> who said that by the way?
[20:06] <Georgia Banno> I am not sure

[20:09] *** the Daggars fall to the ground, burning hot, like steel.

[20:11] <Belona> oculi generetur aqua seorsum?
[20:11] <D. Kakaku> ah, hey there, Eitak, long time no see
[20:12] * D. Kakaku rubs his eyes, but they're still bloodshot...with blue veins.
[20:12] * Invisible person just stands beside Eitak, silently.
[20:12] <Maret Wane> You've been gone for a few weeks now, what has happened?
[20:13] <D. Kakaku> Maret? oh.. well.
[20:13] <@Eitak_Razal> Your eyes look horrible
[20:14] <D. Kakaku> yeah, it's from the holy water treatment they've been gettign.. against my well.
[20:14] <Maret Wane> we're not at the bridge, it seems.
[20:15] <Maret Wane> the ping came specifically form one of the bridges.
[20:15] <D. Kakaku> well, we can talk about all of that on the way back if you all like.
[20:15] * D. Kakaku glares at belona for a bit, who glares back.
[20:16] <@Eitak_Razal> Who are these people and are they freind or foe?
[20:16] <Belona> Acolytus certa disciplina dum modo vestimenta sua.
[20:17] <D. Kakaku> friend, the old Lady is Belona, and Georgia should be around here somewhere.
[20:19] *** a church wagon rolls up, with more than enough seats to seat everyone for the ride
[20:20] <@Eitak_Razal> ....Last time I was in a church wagon, I was being taken to be burned at the stake...
[20:21] <Georgia Banno> I'm here
[20:21] <Invisible person> Yikes. Can you teleport back?
[20:22] <@Eitak_Razal> I coululd but we'll probably be fine. I'm not being hunted by the Spanish Inqustion this time
[20:22] <D. Kakaku> It's been what we used to go from here to there.
[20:22] <Invisible person> >.<;;
[20:23] * D. Kakaku climbs in.
[20:23] * @Eitak_Razal hops on
[20:23] * Invisible person climbs in also, rattling the wagon to announce their presence.
[20:23] * Belona hops on as well.
[20:23] * Belona looks and nods as Maret goes on as well.
[20:24] *** the Church wagon starts driving off towards the Cape May Church with a graveyard, all across the canal, although.
[20:25] *** the device Maret has mades a VERY LOUD PING as the truck passes over the bridge, but that'll try to be resolved after dinner.

[20:50] *** at The Cape May church, the wagon arrives in front of the entrance.
[20:54] * Belona steps off and goes inside.
[20:55] <@Eitak_Razal> ....
[21:01] * Maret Wane and D. Kakaku hop off.
[21:08] * Invisible person dismounts from the carriage.
[21:10] * D. Kakaku and Maret walk inside
[21:10] <Invisible person> You coming, Eitak?
[21:10] <Belona> habemus magis convivae
[21:11] <Invisible person> Eitak, if you go in, I'll cover you.
[21:13] <Priest> come on inside, guests.
[21:15] * Invisible person sneaks in, assuming that Eitak enters too.
[21:17] * Priest walks to the back of the church, opening a secret entrance, leading down to the stone cave.
[21:18] * Priest and Belona go down inside, as well as Daniel.
[21:18] <D. Kakaku> come on down.
[21:19] <Invisible person> <.<
[21:19] <Invisible person> >.>
[21:19] * Invisible person slowly pads along.
[21:19] * Georgia Banno is keeping her eyes out
[21:21] <Belona> Daniel, areis ad civitatis disciplinam, non tamen integrum.
[21:22] <@Eitak_Razal> ....
[21:22] <Priest> you head to the training area while the others follow me, your training is not yet coplete, Daniel.
[21:22] <Invisible person> .....
[21:23] <@Eitak_Razal> Latine tibi malum...
[21:24] * Belona nods at Eitak in understanding and beckons Daniel over to the training room.
[21:25] * D. Kakaku is away 
[21:25] * Belona is away 
[21:26] * Priest walks on over to a huge room, there are a few priests and acolytes, as well as a great elder at the end of the hallway.
[21:27] <@Eitak_Razal> Care to explain what's going on here?
[21:27] <Invisible person> What she said.
[21:28] * Great Elder opens his eyes
[21:30] <Priest> it is time to bring the Cape May acolytes back out into the public again, it seems.
[21:32] <@Eitak_Razal> Make with the expostion
[21:33] * Great Elder begins to explain what he explained to Daniel and Georgia a few weeks ago.
[21:33] <Invisible person> Yeah--and then explain why the hell you didn't let him answer his phone or something!
[21:35] <Priest> his phone?
[21:35] <@Eitak_Razal> We came to find him
[21:35] * Maret Wane nods
[21:36] <Priest> personal items must be removed from plain clothing before switching to the acolyte clothing, which does not have pockets
[21:37] <Invisible person> You are crazy! You should have let him call or talk or send letters that he was okay!
[21:37] <Priest> though I have seen Belona toss out his plain clothing over the bridge during out first trip to the mayor.
[21:37] <@Eitak_Razal> That's just silly, phones are so useful to co-ordinating
[21:40] <Invisible person> She's right.
[21:40] <Priest> the only way he could have lost his phone, is if he kept it in his clothes when they were tossed over... though honestly, I think she did it because of her grudge against the Kakaku family, notably, the grandfather quarter.
[21:41] <Priest> the father's father quarter
[21:42] <@Eitak_Razal> Ok. Moving on. Why they heck did we just run into a Kouma?
[21:42] <Priest> Kouma? is it similar to a Cythraul?
[21:43] <Invisible person> The monster that was burned to death.
[21:43] <Invisible person> Why was it here?
[21:44] <@Eitak_Razal> He didn't see the monstor.
[21:45] <Invisible person> So be it.
[21:45] * Invisible person chants...
[21:45] * Invisible person chants...
[21:45] *** Illusion of a Kouma has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:45] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Illusion of a Kouma
[21:46] <Invisible Person> /makes the Kouma move and sound like a Kouma does.
[21:46] * Priest looks at the illusion, along with the other acolytes and priest in the room... and there's a pained gasp coming form the Elder.
[21:47] <Invisible Person> It's not really there.
[21:47] <Elder> (it is as the original great elder described)
[21:48] <Priest> it is very similar to a Cythraul indeed.
[21:51] <Invisible Person> Well, it might look and sound like a... whatever it is. But there is nothing there.
[21:51] <Invisible Person> ...and we are also not on the best of terms. Why didn't you let him go?
[21:52] <Elder> the Cythrauls have seemed to be multiplying in numbers as of late, and these "Kouma", one has been spotted in Cape May?
[21:53] <Priest> It stemmed from wanting to find out who or what, wanted Judi Liang's head.
[21:53] <@Eitak_Razal> Your people, includeing Danny, were fighting it when we arrived. I roasted it.
[21:55] * Georgia Banno listens
[21:55] <Elder> is he trying to prepare his return? it cannot be.
[21:58] <Elder> especially when his monsters can escape and we cannot go in and re-seal him when the time comes.
[22:04] <@Eitak_Razal> Isn't the New York fighting troupe super close to here? Wouldn't it be faster to just ask them to cdeal with the kouma
[22:04] <Elder> have they reformed?
[22:05] <@Eitak_Razal> They're not active? My info must be out of date
[22:07] <@Eitak_Razal> Anyways, Maret, your thingy, why was it all beepy
[22:07] <Elder> anyways, I must ask that someone try to go to the abandoned steam plant on the island.. it is close to where the sorcerer was sealed..
[22:08] <Maret Wane> it gave a loud reading as we went over the bridge, it might be where his phone is.
[22:08] <@Eitak_Razal> abandoned steam plant? What's there?
[22:11] <Elder> it is abandoned, and sealed off from the inside. and inside lies a sealed sorcerer.
[22:11] <Elder> the seal was badly done, it was made so that somehow, he and his Cythrauls can escape, but no one can go in to finish off the seal.. or make it an effective permanent seal
[22:12] <@Eitak_Razal> So you need the enterance blow up?
[22:13] <Elder> yes, from the inside, without unsealing the sorcerer.
[22:14] <@Eitak_Razal> from the inside? Not an issue
[22:15] <@Eitak_Razal> Show me to the place and I can do it
[22:17] <Elder> since the entrance was sealed long ago, and the army took the documents with them, we do not know where it is, but I have seen pipes poking out from the canal, they might lead there according to rumor.
[22:18] * @Eitak_Razal slumps. "Buhhhhh. Of course it's complicated.
[22:24] <Maret Wane> well, since the pings are at the canal, and the pipes as well.
[22:26] <Priest> if you do find it, try marking a trail so we may reach you.
[22:26] <@Eitak_Razal> Buhhhh. Fine, let's go.... Oh. And Danny is coming with us.
[22:27] <Priest> he is training at the moment, but I will let him know he is needed.
[22:28] <Maret Wane> okay.
[22:28] * Maret Wane starts going up the stairs.
[22:29] <Priest> Good luck, and may the almighty be in your corner.
[22:30] * @Eitak_Razal follows Maret
[22:31] * Maret Wane steps outside and walks along the road, following the dot
[22:32] * @Eitak_Razal follows
[22:32] * Maret Wane has moved to: [ route 626, 2 blocks to bridge ]
[22:32] <Maret Wane> [route 626, 2 blocks to bridge] so, have you seen any thing like this before?
[22:33] <@Eitak_Razal> Like what part?
[22:35] <Maret Wane> [route 626, 2 blocks to bridge] well, the monsters and errands.
[22:35] *** passing Route 9, 1 block to the northeast side of the bridge
[22:35] <@Eitak_Razal> Oh. Monsters? I've fought tons. Errands? More like a quest
[22:35] <Maret Wane> ah, really?
[22:36] <Maret Wane> do they all blur together sometimes?
[22:36] <@Eitak_Razal> Sometimes
[22:36] <@Eitak_Razal> The important ones I usulally remember though
[22:37] <Maret Wane> powerful monsters?
[22:37] *** Now on the northeast side of the bridge.
[22:38] <@Eitak_Razal> Not powerful persay, ones that that ya know, matter in the long
[22:38] <@Eitak_Razal> *long run
[22:38] *** there is a Ping on the radar... on the Southwest side of the bridge.
[22:39] * Maret Wane nods
[22:39] <Maret Wane> haven't gotten to those kind of monsters, but.. huh?
[22:39] * Maret Wane looks
[22:40] <Maret Wane> the other side of the bridge.
[22:41] * Maret Wane starts speedwalking, good thing there are sidewalks on the bridge!
[22:41] * @Eitak_Razal is keeping up just fine despite beeing in heels
[22:42] *** the radar beeps loudly as you get to the southwest side.
[22:42] <Maret Wane> It's around here somewhere....
[22:43] * Maret Wane looks left, right, then down over the bridge.
[22:43] <@Eitak_Razal> Under?
[22:43] <Maret Wane> yes, I think I see something flapping.
[22:44] * Maret Wane gets on the ledge and jumps down.
[22:44] * @Eitak_Razal just leaps over the edge
[22:45] *** coinflip for whether there is a nearby pipe at that spot, and 1d10 for the type of pipe.
[22:46] *** @Eitak_Razal flips a coin into the air and catches it, tails side up
[22:46] <spiritflame> @Eitak_Razal rolls 1d10 [ 5 ]
[22:47] *** no pipe by the bridge, but there is one about 30 feet away, as for what it is, it's about 3 inches in diameter.
[22:48] <Maret Wane> I've found his clothes.
[22:48] <@Eitak_Razal> Yay?
[22:48] * Maret Wane begins searching through and pulls out a cell phone and a slide on wrist device.
[22:49] <Maret Wane> here's his phone.
[22:50] <@Eitak_Razal> again. Yay?
[22:50] * Maret Wane starts trying to turn off the radar, but gets success when the phone is placed on it.
[22:51] <Maret Wane> and , yeah a watch, though he said he wasn't going to be needing it for his trip and.... hm?
[22:51] <Maret Wane> I think I see a pipe about... a good distance away
[22:53] <@Eitak_Razal> Now we're getting somewhere. Let's go.
[22:53] * Maret Wane walks on over to the pipe... which soon blows out a small amount of steam.
[22:55] <@Eitak_Razal> And it's a steam pipe.
[22:56] <Maret Wane> yeah, small one, too.
[22:57] <@Eitak_Razal> Well let's just find this place and get it over with
[22:58] *** all nearby is all residential houses, though the pipe looks older than the houses.
[23:00] * @Eitak_Razal just follows the pipe
[23:01] *** the pipe goes horizontally into the ground after a few feet.
[23:03] * Maret Wane picks up some dirt and molds it into a marble.
[23:03] <Maret Wane> may I?
[23:04] <@Eitak_Razal> Go ahead
[23:04] * @Eitak_Razal steps outta the way
[23:06] * Maret Wane Flings the dirt marble inside at a high speed.... oddly enough, no noise yet until.... a low thud which couldn't come from any nearby structure.
[23:07] <Maret Wane> !
[23:07] <Maret Wane> either a bend or it ends about a good distance away
[23:10] * Maret Wane looks at the items she picked up, and groans.
[23:11] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Eitak_Razal is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[23:11] <@Eitak_Razal> Wanna head back for now?
[23:13] <Maret Wane> there might be one way inside, looks like Daniel's forgetfulness might be just our luck.
[23:14] <@Eitak_Razal> Hmmm?
[23:16] * Maret Wane hands Eitak the wrist device, it's in the OFF position.
[23:16] <@Eitak_Razal> What do I do with this thing?
[23:16] <Maret Wane> he took it from a suit he had, we might as well use it.
[23:17] <Maret Wane> put it on and try turning it.
[23:17] <Maret Wane> I'll hold on.
[23:17] * @Eitak_Razal sighs and does.
[23:17] <@Eitak_Razal> *does so
[23:18] *** we'll say the right direction, but roll 1d175.
[23:18] <spiritflame> @Eitak_Razal rolls 1d175 [ 2 ]
[23:19] *** wow, you might have turned a bit too hard as you shrink down oh so small... 2 centimeters, so about 0.8 inches.
[23:20] <@Eitak_Razal> ...
[23:20] <@Eitak_Razal> Yeah, of course it had to do with his creepy s[BLEEP]t
[23:20] *** Maret Wane flips a coin into the air and catches it, heads side up
[23:21] * Maret Wane has shrunk with you.
[23:21] * Maret Wane looks up, then down at the earth, and holds down on it, causing a pillar to rise up where you're at.
[23:22] *** the pillar goes up to the pipe.
[23:22] <Maret Wane> Let's get inside
[23:22] * Maret Wane starts running inside.
[23:23] * @Eitak_Razal follows
[23:26] *** along the way, you see a bend in the pipe, and the busted marble,but after a while, you manage to reach a crack in the pipe leading to a dark abandoned room
[23:28] <Maret Wane> this must be it.
[23:28] * @Eitak_Razal summons a light
[23:29] *** in the room, there are decrepit, outated, and decomposing steam machines, and two seals placed on opposite sides of eachother, and easily distinguishable.
[23:30] *** of course, since you're both small, these details are very big in comparison.
[23:31] * @Eitak_Razal returns to normal size
[23:32] *** Maret Wane flips a coin into the air and catches it, tails side up
[23:34] * Maret Wane fails to hold on this time.
[23:34] <Maret Wane> agh, which seal is it?
[23:36] * @Eitak_Razal glares at the DM "STOP BEING A CREEP"
[23:39] *** alright, she holds on. I was moving along as though she did anyway.
[23:41] *** the seals are in two distinct locations however, one is on a delicately made was, and the other is on a wall made of stone and gravel, with a dead body by it.
[23:41] <@Eitak_Razal> Alight, which of these doors lead out?
[23:41] <@Eitak_Razal> .....
[23:42] <Maret Wane> well, given what we know, sealing the facility off with stones, It should be the stones and rocks.
[23:43] <@Eitak_Razal> You mean the one with the corpse?
[23:43] <Maret Wane> yes, they did say they buried it, right.
[23:44] * @Eitak_Razal uses her crystal ball to scan the surroundings, checking to make sure
[23:45] *** both seals were made around the same time, the wall feels malevolent and the rocks let the scan go through, but not come back.
[23:45] <@Eitak_Razal> Alright. You're the dirth specailisht.
[23:45] <@Eitak_Razal> *dirt
[23:46] * Maret Wane nods.
[23:47] * Maret Wane starts to wear down the rocks, while some of the rocks do go down into a pile, some bita and pieces of a tunnel begin to show.... and a piece of the scan begins to come back.
[23:47] * @Eitak_Razal helps out where she can, using earth spells
[23:48] *** the rocks are worn down until only a blue translucent wall remains.
[23:49] *** well, it's more of a clear wall whose outside edges are blue and flame-like, oh you know what I'm getting at.
[23:49] * @Eitak_Razal examines the spells in it, takig care to only look, not trigger traps
[23:49] *** you may need a strong spell to get rid of it.
[23:50] * @Eitak_Razal checks to see if it's safe just to dismantle the spell
[23:50] * Maret Wane it looks to be a one way spell, but placed incorrectly, as though it was mant to be a sealed jail conversion.
[23:51] *** it is safe to dismantle it, for sake of time
[23:51] <@Eitak_Razal> The spell is haphazard. I should be able to just dismantle it.
[23:51] * @Eitak_Razal works on dispelling it
[23:52] *** for the sake of time, I will not bother with a roll, the spell is taken down and you're now in a runnel corridor.
[23:52] *** *tunnel
[23:53] * @Eitak_Razal jsut presses forwards
[23:53] <spiritflame> Maret Wane rolls 1d4 for a cardinal direction. [ 2 ]
[23:54] *** well, that was awkward, she rolled east before I got a chance to say anything, you soon come across a wooden door... and on the other side is the water building.
[23:55] *** outside of the water building is... the train station, where the wagon awaits.
[23:57] <Maret Wane> whew, what was... a bit hard.
[23:57] * @Eitak_Razal walks over to the wagon. "Outer seal is down. There's a body in there by the way"
[23:58] * Maret Wane climbs aboard as the wagon soon takes off towards the church.
[23:58] *** and we'll leave it off for here in real time.

[19:45] *** AND WE ARE BACK!!!!
[19:45] *** The force field ahead rapidly looms!!
[19:47] *** swims faster and faster!!
[19:48] *** Alldrogis Valkyvida [Inquisitor [REDACTED]] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:48] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Alldrogis Valkyvida
[19:48] * Alldrogis Valkyvida swims faster and faster!!
[19:53] * Alldrogis Valkyvida SOARS through the force field and hits the floor beyond. He's INSIDE the Fabricator now!
[19:55] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> We're finally here.
[19:56] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[19:56] * Alldrogis Valkyvida bends down. His body starts to warp and bulge in weird ways, then something starts to DETACH from inside of him.
[19:56] *** Chibi-Leady has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:56] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Chibi-Leady
[19:57] * Chibi-Leady flops to the strange metal/stone floor and flails around for a minute or so before finally recovering.
[19:57] <Chibi-Leady> WHAT THE F[BLEEP]K?! That was the SECOND MOST WEIRDEST experience of my life!!!
[19:59] * F/A-9 Skyhawks are providing air cover while the Queen's Bounty and a few Airwolf Packs conduct search and rescue near the sunken Xenos fleet
[20:01] <U-556> I'm withdrawing. I need to rejoin my sisters above and reestablish contact with the rest of the force.
[20:01] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Understood.
[20:03] * Alldrogis Valkyvida straightens back up and whips out his signature laser rifle, taking aim down the wide hallway. From ahead, the gloom is pierced with slow pulses of emerald green light and a steady metallic grinding noise. It feels like something dark and dangerous is slowly rousing itself from eldritch hibernation.
[20:07] * Chibi-Leady rises unsteadily to her feet. She wasn't wearing much inside of her original armor, and now it's easy to see how much wear and tear her T-Doll body has gone through over the years. The flesh-coverings on parts of her feet and hands have worn away, revealing the endoskeleton underneath.
[20:07] <Chibi-Leady> anyone else down here with us?
[20:07] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:09] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> There soon will be.
[20:09] * Alldrogis Valkyvida crouches down, reaching into a sealed case he'd been carrying on his back, and starts to quickly put together some kind of device inside.
[20:10] * Faria-02 is here, alongside Yusa-44 and Zepp-82.
[20:13] * Chibi-Leady takes a few steps forward, looking around.
[20:14] * Chibi-Leady sees the wreck of the Seatruck nearby.
[20:14] <Chibi-Leady> Wow, that thing will never sail again.
[20:14] <Chibi-Leady> Wait...that's Wolf-girl's ship!
[20:14] <Chibi-Leady> She made it this far? Where the heck is that goof?
[20:17] <Faria-02> ....I'm picking up on another signal.... some of our own made it down here.
[20:19] <Chibi-Leady> How far ahead?
[20:19] <Faria-02> A fair bit ahead..... it's Gamma, Ionia and Viola. Lemme see---
[20:19] <Faria-02> !!!
[20:19] <Faria-02> They found Kagerou!
[20:19] <Chibi-Leady> Is she alive?
[20:21] <Faria-02> Yes, but her condition isn't very good. Viola's looking her over..... looks like something or someone shanked her.
[20:24] <Faria-02> Gamma sent out some probes.... repair drones have been headed out towards a ship.... "Rock you Like a Hurricane"?
[20:29] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:37] <Chibi-Leady> WHAT?!
[20:37] <Chibi-Leady> WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO MY SHIP?!
[20:39] <Faria-02> ....the automated submersibles we fought earlier are being mass-produced down here.... and... what is this? A cultivation tube?
[20:40] * Chibi-Leady starts to run forward. "LEAD ME TO HER!"
[20:42] * Zepp-82 reaches out to pull Leady back. "Hold it!"
[20:42] *** There's also someone else at the controls of that tube...and she has the craziest grin on her face.
[20:43] <Zepp-82> There's someone at that tube.... and I doubt they're friendly.
[20:45] <Chibi-Leady> Hey! Lemme go!
[20:45] <Chibi-Leady> So...who's the other person? What happened to LM-101?
[20:48] <Zepp-82> ...trying to find that now.... Viola's asking Kagerou what she knows....
[20:53] <Zepp-82> seems LM-101 is the one at the tube's console. That one attacked Kagerou out of the blue.... betrayal?
[21:01] <Chibi-Leady> Is she responsible for what's happening here?
[21:01] <Zepp-82> Looks like it. Dunno what she's after, but with Kagerou out of harm's way, we should be clear to strike this traitor down.
[21:05] *** Ahead in the gloom, something starts to clank and move in large numbers.
[21:11] *** And it's DEFINITELY moving CLOSER!
[21:12] *** And pause here for now since I need to get ready for bed. I probably have to work tomorrow, so I'll see you all later. Take care and good night.

[21:44] * Two figurse fight desperatly on the very edge of the galaxy........each one nearly evenly matched with the other
[21:44] * the energy from them create a strange colorful aurora which spreads across the sky of the planet they fight on
[21:48] * the time machine is being buffered and beaten, it's own structure in danger.....
[21:50] * The Final Conflict has become
[21:50] <The Final Conflict> *begun

[19:47] <Elder> you found an entrance to the abandoned steam plant?
[19:48] <Maret Wane> we wound up creating one, Eitak did tell you, right?
[19:49] <Elder> that she did, but I do not know if the existing seal can be strengthened, I keep feeling something is about to happen, and yet, this may not have been preventable.
[19:50] <Acolyte> Elder... there is trouble on the southeastern coastline.
[19:51] <Elder> training is not yet finished, how can it be? is it a Cythraul?
[19:52] * Elder is away: or was it the Kouma that were being spoken about not too long ago?

[23:02] * Matsumi Kaze has fallen asleep in a chair in Magistra's TARDIS...after everything that has happened..the final battle....rescuing Azusa from herself....all the adventures...she's exausted
[23:03] * finally sets the TARDIS to bring them home, for real this time.
[23:03] * The Magistra ^
[23:05] <Matsumi Kaze> zzzzzz
[23:08] * Azusa looks horribly guilty...
[23:10] <Azusa> ..I..I'm sorries..
[23:12] * The Magistra just smiles
[23:13] <The Magistra> Don't fret over it. Go get some rest.
[23:23] <Azusa> but..
[23:39] * Azusa wanders off to sleep
[00:26] * Matsumi Kaze sleeps soundly
[19:55] *** And we're back!!
[19:58] *** When last we continued, the party had reached the inside of the Fabricator and seemed to have a welcoming committee approaching!
[19:58] <Chibi-Leady> What's that noise up ahead?
[20:00] * Capt. David O`Cain has sent a couple of fireteams out on Zodiac boats to help further the search and rescue as Donovan and other Airwolf packs do theirs. Teams Eagle and Falcon are up above providing air cover as the effort goes on.
[20:00] * Chibi-Leady squints as she stares into the gloom.
[20:01] *** So far most of the damaged Kansen are being recovered. Still no sign of Bismarck yet.
[20:02] <Enterprise> Situation update! The Nurgle Leviathan is breaking free! We can actually see it starting to claw out of the cave entrance! Estimating only a few minutes before it frees itself.
[20:04] *** Back down in the Fabricator, the clanking gets louder...then DOZENS of large spider-like forms begin to emerge out of the darkness. Repair-drones! But they're making their way towards everyone else!
[20:06] *** Repair tools extend out from the "heads" of the drones. You get the distinct impression that they do NOT intend to "fix" you of your injuries.
[20:15] <Yusa-44> ........ methinks it may be clobbering time.
[20:25] *** You suddenly hear Alldrogis from somewhere in the distance behind you all.
[20:25] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> There! System active!
[20:26] <Hellesponte AI> !!!!
[20:26] *** Up in orbit Hellesponte AI stiffens a little as she becomes aware of a new signal being transmitted from the surface.
[20:26] <Hellesponte AI> Hellesponte AI to ground forces!
[20:33] <Capt. David O`Cain> Whatchu want, Helles?
[20:41] <Hellesponte AI> Teleport beacon now active! Teleportarium coming online!
[20:42] <Capt. David O`Cain> Wait, what?
[20:42] *** Deep below the ocean, inside the Fabricator, there's a HUGE energy pulse and a strong gust of wind blows over Chibi-Leady and the Descos. Something just displaced a LOT of air!
[20:43] *** David...Yukari-portals are opening! She's locked onto the Teleport Beacon too!
[20:44] * Chibi-Leady flinches a little as a repair-drone near her bursts into pieces as a high-caliber gyroslug punches through its outer shell and detonates inside of it!
[20:45] <Capt. David O`Cain> Uh...what now?
[20:46] *** Full-auto gunfire starts tearing out of the darkness BEHIND Chibi-Leady and punching into the oncoming swarm of repair-drones, along with powerful booms that and almost immediately punctuated by the CRACK of a drone bursting from within! Wait...those are BOLTGUNS!
[20:46] * Chibi-Leady looks behind her and sees....
[20:47] *** M4A1 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:47] <@spiritflame> konbanwa M4A1

[20:47] <@spiritflame> konbanwa AK-12
[20:48] *** Team Anti-Rain and Task Force Defy rush forward and take up position alongside Chibi-Leady, laying down a withering barrage of fire against the swarm of drones.
[20:50] *** Several Ghost Fox Astartes hurry forward as well, firing their Boltguns with each step they take, and blowing apart drones with each pull of the trigger.
[20:50] * Capt. David O`Cain looks to see who or what is coming through the portals on the surface
[20:52] *** Looking through, you see that the portal leads inside of what looks like a vast Architect facility, and you can hear lots and lots of gunfire nearby. It's the Fabricator!!
[20:58] <Megan O`Cain> You're going through, aren't you.
[20:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yup. Iris, maintain rescuing.
[20:59] * Capt. David O`Cain jumps through the portal after Iris acknowledges the mission at hand
[20:59] * Megan O`Cain quickly follows David
[21:09] *** Inside the Fabricator it's dark, gloomy, and downright unsettling. Ahead, you can see a horde of scuttling repair-drones surging towards a line of T-Dolls and Space Marines, who are laying down an intense barrage of fire that's keeping the drones at bay.
[21:09] *** And there's ONE T-Doll in the middle of it all that's a hell of a lot shorter than everyone else.
[21:11] * Yusa-44 and a number of other Descos are lending the T-Dolls some covering fire.
[21:12] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hey, Leady! What mess did you get yourself into this time?
[21:13] <Chibi-Leady> I'm trying to find that boneheaded wolf-girl but these repair-drones are coming at us all like their lives depend on it!
[21:20] <Megan O`Cain> Dean, think you can cause a shutdown?
[21:20] *** And pause here for the night since I'm starting to fall asleep. I have to work on a few things tomorrow evening, so I won't be able to get online, but I'll see you all again on Monday.
[21:20] *** Take care until then and I'll see you next time.

[12:41] *** D. Kakaku and Belona are in the middle of the city, while various Cythrauls and Kouma are attacking the various establishments.
[13:36] * is scratched in the leg as he stabs a daggar into the Cythraul.
[13:36] * D. Kakaku *^
[14:17] <D. Kakaku> agh!
[17:16] *** the Cythrauls start sniffing out the blood and begin circling the group..... is it?
[17:17] * D. Kakaku starts covering the wound he got from the Cythraul.
[17:17] *** .... Yes.... YES...... YES!..... THIS IS IT!
[18:29] *** some of the Cythraul start to circle close to D. Kakaku.
[18:30] <D. Kakaku> oh no you don't
[18:30] * D. Kakaku prepares the daggars.
[18:35] * D. Kakaku starts stabbing at the Cythrauls 2 by 2
[18:41] <D. Kakaku> one cythraul leaps at the blood, consuming what little there is, soon melting to the ground with a new message
[18:41] *** 你的身體完成了,朱迪良的後代
[18:42] *** one cythraul leaps at the blood, consuming what little there is, soon melting to the ground with a new message "你的身體完成了,朱迪良的後代"
[18:45] * D. Kakaku the message deforms and slimes off somewhere
[18:46] <Belona> haec cures Cythraul sequar limosae monstra..
[18:46] * Belona starts following the clime Cythraul, gun and holy water at the ready.
[18:51] *** the slime Cythraul goes under the door of the waterworks.
[18:51] <Belona> quod est, non esse?
[18:54] * Belona opens the door to the water works and follows down the room of the water pumps and into the formerly locked door.
[18:57] * Belona runs down the old corridor.
[18:58] *** the Cythraul slips into a room that is no longer sealed up.
[18:58] <Belona> Quid? o, recta, eos duabus puellis: et factum est ad aethereum thalamum, reseal rursusque coeundi ad capiendum.
[19:00] <Belona> Ego personaliter non numquam intus, sed ... ... non possit esse in signatis loco ....
[19:00] * Belona doubles down to the room.
[19:01] * Belona looks at the decayed body before her.
[19:02] <Belona> ..... ita hic quo nunc omnia haec ... anni alii alio abiere in domo tua et cogitavi inertia adici debent.
[19:05] <Belona> Tulit quoque Judi filia tua gratiam coram aliquem a sui communione productum .... timeo nec revertetur me.
[19:05] *** meanwhile, on the battlefield.
[19:07] * D. Kakaku is continuing to stab a few Cythrauls, even getting a few Kouma while the battle rages on, but eventually, they all retreat into the waterworks.
[19:13] * D. Kakaku starts following them all.
[19:13] <D. Kakaku> I'm not letting you get away with my blood, or what you've done.
[19:15] * D. Kakaku is chasing them down.
[19:17] * D. Kakaku sees them going into the same Room that Belona and the Slime Cythraul went into.
[19:18] * Belona is soon attacked for a bit of her blood
[19:18] <Belona> Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
[19:18] <D. Kakaku> Belona!
[19:20] *** before he can get to Belona, the Cythraul go to the wall with the collected blood, smearing it at the wall, as it starts to glow.
[19:20] <Belona> Surgite egredimini a populo, ante se erumpit liberum!
[19:21] * Belona 's collar is grabbed by an old hand emerging from the wall.
[19:21] * Belona is choking.
[19:21] *** the arm the hand is connected to emerges from the wall.
[19:23] *** the rest of the body emerges from the wall.
[19:24] * Belona gasps as her soul is being sucked out of her.
[19:25] * The old man stands and sucks out Belona's soul, moving like this and speaking these exact words... Your SOUL is MINE!"
[19:28] * The old man is now known as Shang Tsung
[19:29] * Shang Tsung looks at the young man standing at the doorway.
[19:30] <Shang Tsung> hmmmhmhmmm, not much taste, maybe a few more years and it would have been gone anyway.
[19:35] * Shang Tsung begins shooting flaming skull.
[19:38] *** D. Kakaku leaps out of the way of the flaming skull and gets the hell out of there!
[19:38] <Shang Tsung> ... so many souls...
[19:38] * Shang Tsung grips his hand.
[19:39] * Shang Tsung is now known as Belona?
[19:39] <Belona?> so little time...
[19:39] * Georgia Banno follows DK
[19:41] <spiritflame> D. Kakaku rolls 1d10 [ 9 ]
[19:41] * D. Kakaku stops in front of Georgia Banno
[19:42] <D. Kakaku> we gotta get out of here, now!.
[19:54] * Georgia Banno nods
[20:14] * D. Kakaku starts going down the hallway, moving away from the room.
[20:17] <D. Kakaku> that sorcerer just broke free, those little monsters took my blood and set him free using it.
[20:30] * D. Kakaku opens the door back to the water works.
[20:34] <D. Kakaku> keeping up?
[20:54] * D. Kakaku has reached outside.
[20:54] <D. Kakaku> Georgia?
[21:04] <D. Kakaku> oh no, don't tell me!
[21:13] <Georgia Banno> I'm..I'm here
[21:16] <D. Kakaku> I think we gotta regroup and think of a plan.
[21:26] * D. Kakaku starts running through the streets.
[21:26] *** D. Kakaku flips a coin into the air and catches it, tails side up
[21:28] *** Cythrauls start popping out of many corners of the city, as people begin to scream in terror at many simultaneous multiple unexplained hauntings.
[21:38] <D. Kakaku> not again!, we got more now.
[21:50] *** the Cythrauls start lunging forwards.
[21:51] * D. Kakaku takes out the daggers, dipping them in Holy Water.
[21:57] * D. Kakaku starts stabbing at them as they get close, while he is taking off towards Route 626.
[22:08] <D. Kakaku> if we can get past the bridge, I hope these things get repelled by water.
[22:27] *** more are on the approach.
[22:38] *** the bridge is getting closer as it is being run towards.
[22:48] <D. Kakaku> we're almost there
[22:49] * Georgia Banno follows!
[22:54] *** the bridge is just moments away.
[22:54] *** soon though.... the bridge EXPLODES!
[22:54] * D. Kakaku stops in his tracks.
[22:55] <D. Kakaku> O_O
[23:12] <Georgia Banno> ....
[23:21] <Belona?> you're both not going anywhere.
[00:14] * Belona? strikes a pose and transforms
[00:15] * Belona? is now known as Shang Tsung
[00:18] <Shang Tsung> my my... I didn't realize Judi had a male Protégé.
[00:25] <D. Kakaku> don't even, not to either of my grandmothers.
[00:25] <Shang Tsung> ohh, did I touch a nerve?
[00:28] <Shang Tsung> perhaps I should touch a soul instead.
[00:29] <D. Kakaku> ... we got no choice, we have to swim across the canal.
[00:41] * Shang Tsung sends a barrage of flaming skulls at the pair.
[01:01] *** on hold for now

[19:50] *** And we're BAAAAAAAAAACK (finally)!!!!
[19:53] *** When last we'd continued, battle had begun!
[19:54] *** Repair-drones are continuing to surge forward, and it looks like there are other things beginning to get closer as well!
[19:54] <M4A1> Advance! Drive them back!
[19:56] * The Descos currently here are using a combination of eye-beams, Mini-Descos and tendril strikes to fend off the repair-drones!
[19:56] <Sopmod-2> >:D
[19:56] <Chibi-Leady> Grrrrr...SOMEBODY GIVE ME A WEAPON!!!!
[19:57] *** Something else comes through the Yukari-portals!
[19:57] *** It looks like Yukari's drawing reinforcements from the surface too!
[19:58] *** WA-2000 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa WA-2000
[19:58] *** AA-12 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa AA-12
[19:58] * Megan O`Cain and David have already exited a portal, and are firing at the drones with their Delta Buster cannons
[19:58] *** SPAS-12 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa SPAS-12
[19:58] <SPAS-12> :D
[19:58] *** ~SomeTHING else has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:58] <@spiritflame> konbanwa ~SomeTHING else
[19:59] * SomeTHING else just lurks at the back for a moment...taking in the view and calculating everything for a few seconds...
[19:59] <SomeTHING else> ...
[19:59] <SomeTHING else> WAAAAAAAAGH~!!!!!!!!!!!
[19:59] * SomeTHING else is now known as Brickfist
[20:00] <Zepp-82> ......wut
[20:00] * Brickfist CHARGES forward, bashing aside the T-Dolls, nearly knocking over David and Megan, and almost TRAMPLING on the Descos as he sprints to get in close enough to go hand-to-hand with those repair-drones!!
[20:01] * Megan O`Cain and David quickly sidestep Brickfist as she changes to the Jupiter Upgrade
[20:02] <Yusa-44> word.
[20:02] <AK-12> O__O
[20:03] <AN-94> Oh crap!
[20:03] <AA-12> o__O
[20:04] * Brickfist SLAMS into the front group of repair-drones and starts SMASHING the F[BLEEP]K out of them with a large piece of hull material torn free from Kagerou's wrecked Seatruck
[20:05] <Chibi-Leady> :D
[20:05] <Yusa-44> .................what in the name of Lamingtom?
[20:05] <Yusa-44> * Lamington
[20:09] *** High-powered multi-frequency laser blasts start ringing out from behind everyone, adding their own dose of firepower to the barrage forcing back the repair-drones.
[20:10] *** Alldrogis Valkyvida [Inquisitor [REDACTED]] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:10] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Alldrogis Valkyvida
[20:10] * Alldrogis Valkyvida keeps firing that xenos laser rifle he calls an M-480 with every step, and each shot is bullseyeing a target.
[20:11] * Megan O`Cain makes a few hand signs in front of her chestplate, spreads her hands apart as electricity crackles between them, and then CLAPS as she takes a big step forwards to unleash a forward EMP shockwave towards the repair drones
[20:11] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Status report! How are we doing?
[20:15] <Tundra Kit> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:16] *** The swarm of drones is knocked back by the EMP shockwave, many of them becoming inactive as their systems are disrupted...which just makes them easy pickings for everyone else.
[20:16] <Capt. David O`Cain> Damn, sis. Was that...?
[20:17] <Megan O`Cain> That's my secondary with the Jupiter Upgrade.
[20:18] <Capt. David O`Cain> Kinda like Hulk's clap, but for machines.
[20:18] <Megan O`Cain> Exactly.
[20:21] * Megan O`Cain turns to the rest of the group, "Shall we move on?"
[20:22] <Yusa-44> Indeed. Gamma, Ionia and Viola are doing what they can to stabilize Miss Kagerou, but the sooner we extract them, the better.
[20:22] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Yes. We need to hurry. I still have to analyze that Kharar sample.
[20:24] <Chibi-Leady> Which way is Kagerou. Can you give us a direction?
[20:25] <Yusa-44> Viola's signal is coming from that direction.
[20:25] * Yusa-44 points.
[20:25] * Megan O`Cain and David quickly move
[20:26] * Chibi-Leady hurries forward as well.
[20:27] * Brickfist trots along. "OI! WAIT UP. I'za not so fast right now."
[20:28] * Brickfist has a LOT of red smeared over the front of his body, and he's clutching his side rather tightly too
[20:31] * Megan O`Cain and David stop, look at each other, and combine their healing powers to heal Brickfist's injury
[20:31] <Capt. David O`Cain> Fine, ya big, green baby.
[20:32] * Yusa-44 leads the way towards Viola's signal. "Should be right about.............. here."
[20:35] <Tundra Kit> :3
[20:35] * Brickfist 's injuries close and...WOW. Brickfist's injuries were SEVERE. He'd been quite literally ripped open by Roon's claws during that fight a while ago, and any NORMAL Human would have perished instantly. Even an enhanced Human would have been hard-pressed to survive let alone move. This must be that infamous Greenskin durability you've heard about.
[20:36] *** Up ahead, the passage widens into a massive long chamber. In the middle is a clear cylindrical capsule of some kind, filled with clear liquid inside which something is forming. Laying on the ground nearby is none other than Kagerou!!
[20:37] <Capt. David O`Cain> There. Now get going.
[20:38] *** But also nearby are the destroyed remains of some kind of strange centaur-like alien creature that doesn't look well as a Sniper-model T-Doll of OBVIOUS Sangvis Ferri origins!
[20:38] *** LM-101 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:38] <@spiritflame> konbanwa LM-101
[20:38] * Yusa-44 sights her fellow Desco sisters, and gets a status-update from them over telepathic link.
[20:40] * Kagerou Imaizumi is on the ground. She's partially conscious now, but the laser burns in her back are quite severe. The only thing keeping her from going into deep shock are the copious amounts of Morphia and Metamizole in her system.
[20:42] * Zepp-82 helps direct Gamma and Viola to patching up Kagerou as best they can. Ionia relays her findings to the other Descos.
[20:46] * Alldrogis Valkyvida tosses a small package towards the Descos near Kagerou. It's an Enhanced Bandage!
[20:46] * Zepp-82 turns her attention to LM-101, identifying that one as the one who savaged Kagerou.
[20:47] * Gamma-95 catches the Enhanced Bandage, and begins applying it to Kagerou immediately.
[20:47] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan aim their cannons at LM-101 quietly
[20:49] *** The Enhanced Bandage reacts quite strangely as it's applied to Kagerou's injuries. The material is a strange high-quality silken fiber, and glows with a magical incantation that was actually woven into the fabric. The casting activates as Kagerou's blood provides the last material component for the Minor Healing spell imbedded in the bandage.
[20:49] <LM-101> ...
[20:49] <LM-101> :D
[20:49] <LM-101> OH-HOHOHOHO!!!
[20:50] * LM-101 looks at everyone with a crazy expression on her face.
[20:54] <Faria-02> (....think my ears are ringing from hearing that obnoxious laugh.)
[20:56] <Capt. David O`Cain> Step away from that console.
[20:57] <Megan O`Cain> Identify yourself.
[21:00] <LM-101> OH-HOHOHOHOHO!!!!
[21:04] * LM-101 suddenly whips out a long-las sniper rifle, drops to a knee, and FIRES at a Desco!!!
[21:05] * Faria-02 is quick to fire off a beam to counter the shot!!
[21:08] * LM-101 takes a hit that pierces part of her shoulder, but she keeps shooting!
[21:09] * Megan O`Cain and David both fire their Delta Busters at LM-101
[21:11] * Yusa-44 and Zepp-82 lend Faria-02 their own eyes in firing back at LM-101!
[21:12] * LM-101 is blown backwards onto the controls of the Nano-Assembler she was working at, her whole left arm and large chunks of the rest of her body blown away!!
[21:13] *** The contents of the Nano-Assembler suddenly churn violently and are flushed downwards. Whatever was inside has been "flushed" away.
[21:15] * Megan O`Cain and David carefully step towards LM-101's body as they keep their cannons trained on her
[21:19] * LM-101 is lying atop an Architect control panel, twitching and laughing peculiarly
[21:25] * Ionia-33 takes a moment to try and figure out where the Nano-Assembler's contents would go.
[21:26] <Megan O`Cain> Alright, I'm gonna ask again. Who are you? Also, what were you doing?
[21:32] *** The Nano-Assembler's contents apparently went out into the Void!
[21:32] * LM-101 judders as she stares up at Megan, still grinning.
[21:34] <Megan O`Cain> Don't make me use other methods in getting your data and info.
[21:38] <LM-101> - So when...exile... -
[21:38] <LM-101> - and stood alone...challenging the status quo and going their own way... -
[21:39] <LM-101> - What was the Alliance to do? What could save the Alliance but wage war so calamitous and glorious that it would snap the Alliance in its entirety... -
[21:40] <LM-101> - Out of its foolish, worthless charade...and what better opponent was there... -
[21:41] * LM-101 grins demonically. "Than the Van Saar Nation?"
[21:42] <Capt. David O`Cain> The hell you spouting about, woman?
[21:42] *** You've heard that utterance before...
[21:42] <Dignified Male Voice> I see why that voice sounded so disgustingly familiar.
[21:43] * Dignified Male Voice is now known as Alan
[21:43] * Alan floats into the room, landing nearby.
[21:44] <Alan> During most of my searches above-ground, I kept hearing this laughter.... obnoxious and loud, as if uttered almost constantly in some vain attempt at feeling superior.
[21:45] <Alan> It took a bit of time and some cross-referencing, but I now know why that laugh was so familiar...... yet another hastily cobbled attempt at defying one's own end.
[21:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> Seriously? This Leona-sounding b[BLEEP]ch?
[21:46] <Alan> Indeed, Captain O`Cain.
[21:46] * LM-101 maintains that creepy laugh
[21:47] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Another Eidolon.
[21:47] <Alan> This "LM-101" is yet another pathetic attempt by Leona Morimoto to stave off the end she so humiliatingly suffered upon this world.
[21:48] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> However...that's NOT a high-end AI-driven cyberform. A Sangvis Ferri Ringleader like Agent or Ourouboros could certainly serve as the host for a Digital Personality, but not something as lowly as one of their mass-produced T-Dolls
[21:48] <Capt. David O`Cain> Greaaaat. ~_~
[21:49] * Megan O`Cain has Dean try to figure out what LM-101 was doing
[21:50] <Alan> Honestly, at this point are we certain her true self isn't that of a roach, somehow still clinging to existence?
[21:51] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> More than likely that's a fairly accurate assessment.
[21:53] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Jaegers are not designed to be sophisticated. They're not even as advanced as an "old-model" Griffin T-Doll.
[21:56] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Their cognitive processors are basic. They have effective combat processing abilities, but they're not designed for the extreme high-level Observe-Orient-Decide-Act feedback loop necessary for any degree of real self-awareness beyond the most rudimentary level
[21:57] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> If the Leona Morimoto AI program was uploaded onto this cyberform, then it's likely only a small fraction of it was successfully installed.
[21:57] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> This isn't Leona Morimoto. It's just a faint, fragmented shadow of her.
[21:59] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Unable to run the AI program beyond a single-digit percentage of its necessary capacity.
[22:01] <Megan O`Cain> I see.
[22:02] *** It appears that LM-101 was able to restore MOST of the Fabricator's functionality, and this particular Nano-Assembler clearly made SOMETHING, but it's impossible to comprehend the records.
[22:03] * Alldrogis Valkyvida steps up to the Nano-Assembler and places the sealed cannister inside, then goes over to the controls.
[22:03] <Alan> How troublesome. If this mere shell was able to cause this kind of damage....
[22:04] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Now, I need you to protect me while I begin accessing these controls. I have to perform a full analysis of the Nurglish-strain Kharar virus in order to develop an effective counteragent to it.
[22:04] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Al-an...
[22:04] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Al-An...the Architect...he was activating this place when LM-101 attacked us.
[22:04] <Megan O`Cain> From what, Alldrogis? This (points at LM-101)?
[22:05] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> No, from any other nasty surprises she might have left for us as a contingency.
[22:06] *** And I've gotta get going for the night since I just noticed it's a lot later than I anticipated. We'll continue this from where we leave off tonight tomorrow.
[22:06] *** I apologize for the abruptness, but I still have to work tomorrow and get up super-early accordingly.
[22:06] *** Thank everyone for joining in, and I'll see you next time. Good night.
[19:25] *** Getting set up
[19:38] * Kagerou Imaizumi is sobbing a little.
[19:39] <Kagerou Imaizumi> It began when I was exploring that small canyon near the Island and found an Architect base deep underwater. There were artifacts emitting what seemed like SOS in Morse Code.
[19:40] * Megan O`Cain and David stick near Alldrogis
[19:41] <Kagerou Imaizumi> So when I went down by myself to prove to Hatate that I was NOT a "fraidy-wolf" I found a cavern containing a big Architect construct. It looked like a bunch of metal rods clustered together to form a cube floating in midair, but it spoke to me! It was an actual Architect!
[19:42] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Or...more specifically it was the uploaded consciousness of one. It said that its emergency containment system was shutting down due to power failure and it needed help. It had detected a something with suitable capacity to house it until an alternative could be found, so I thought it meant my dataslate.
[19:43] <Kagerou Imaizumi> It turned meant my BRAIN.
[19:44] <Megan O`Cain> S[BLEEP]t.
[19:44] <Capt. David O`Cain> It wanted your brain? That's....messed up.
[19:45] <Kagerou Imaizumi> No, what it did was transfer its consciousness into ME.
[19:46] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan both look at Kagerou with head tilting
[19:46] <Kagerou Imaizumi> The Architects are like spirits. They can transfer themselves into different bodies.
[19:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> I see.
[19:48] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I understand. The Architects are purely digital entities. Their technology advanced to such a level that they altered their consciousnesses to become hyper-advanced AIs.
[19:49] <Kagerou Imaizumi> So Al-An transferred itself into my mind...which was a VERY weird experience from that point on.
[19:49] <Yusa-44> So what is this Archigect trying to accomplish?
[19:49] <Capt. David O`Cain> Sooo, she now has an AI assistant?
[19:51] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Al-An wanted me to help it manufacture a new body and find out what happened to the rest of the Architects. He'd been infected with the Kharar during the outbreak here a thousand years ago, and when his physical body succumbed, he uploaded himself into Storage in order to avoid dying.
[19:51] <Megan O`Cain> Interesting. Is he summonable like Dean and Daxter are?
[19:52] <Kagerou Imaizumi> I had to travel all over the place in order to find samples of Architect bodies in order to piece together what they were made from and how they worked.
[19:52] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Summonable? I don't think so. Al-An was more like a presence in my mind that was aware of everything I was doing. He DID speak to me a lot.
[19:53] <Kagerou Imaizumi> During my exploration of one of the crashed starships I found LM-101. I activated her in order to help me.
[19:54] <Megan O`Cain> Go on.
[19:54] <Kagerou Imaizumi> It was also during my quest all over the place that I met Chibi-Leady.
[19:55] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yeah? What'd the fink do?
[19:55] <Kagerou Imaizumi> She didn't want me to investigate certain places. She REALLY didn't want me to find the remains of the Omega Lab.
[19:56] <Kagerou Imaizumi> I think SHE was the one who attacked it long ago.
[19:57] <Kagerou Imaizumi> And she didn't want me going anywhere near the Eastern Ice Fields because of Eisenblut.
[19:57] <Capt. David O`Cain> Huh.
[19:58] <Kagerou Imaizumi> But between LM-101 and Al-An I had to go deeper and deeper underwater and underground. I saw all kinds of amazing things...and horrifying things too
[20:01] <Capt. David O`Cain> I can imagine, Kagerou.
[20:02] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Finally, I was able to get here to the Fabricator with the necessary components for Al-An's new body. With LM-101's help, I was able to get here, prepare the components, and start the manufacturing process. Al-An then transferred his consciousness OUT of me and INTO his new body.
[20:02] <Kagerou Imaizumi> But then...LM-101 betrayed us.
[20:03] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Why? Why did she attack us?
[20:04] <Megan O`Cain> If anything, (looks at LM-101) she was acting like Morimoto.
[20:05] <Kagerou Imaizumi> What's a Morimoto?
[20:06] <Megan O`Cain> Leona.
[20:07] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I think I know what happened. This "Al-An" must have helped Kagerou activate some of the systems of the Fabricator to assemble a new body.
[20:07] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> LM-101 must have betrayed them both and accessed the system before any shutdown or failsafe system could activate.
[20:08] <Alan> All to potentially break that diseased snake free.
[20:08] <Megan O`Cain> What do you suggest we do with LM-101?
[20:09] * Alldrogis Valkyvida knocks LM-101 off of the main console.
[20:09] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I'd say do with her however you desire.
[20:10] * Alldrogis Valkyvida lays his hands on the console...then his hands seem to melt into a widening pool of shifting and rippling liquid metal that flows of its own accord into various parts of the alien machine
[20:14] * Megan O`Cain and David both warily look at LM-101
[20:15] * LM-101 is still making that creepy laugh.
[20:18] <Megan O`Cain> I hate saying it, but she might have some info in her memory. Dean will need to be careful.
[20:19] <Capt. David O`Cain> May have to tag team that. I'll send in Daxter if you decide to dive in, sis.
[20:24] * LM-101 keeps laughing
[20:31] * Alldrogis Valkyvida reactivates the Nano-Assembler!
[20:34] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan send in their AIs to look for info inside LM-101
[20:34] <Capt. David O`Cain> Here goes nothing.
[20:35] * Alan works with the Descos to keep a eye out for anything that LM might've left behind as a nasty surprise.
[20:36] * LM-101 starts to thrash and shudder as her systems are invaded!
[20:37] *** Fortunately, it doesn't look like LM-101 left any surprises behind. There's still the sounds of explosions and shooting elsewhere in the Fabricator though
[20:46] *** There isn't much left inside LM-101's mainframe...although it IS surprising to discover that she even had the capacity to make use of nano-paste in the first place
[20:46] * Dean and Daxter do their best to search
[20:47] *** Wait...OH DAMMIT! Her body type only outwardly resembled a Jaeger-class Sangvis Ferri mass-production T-Doll. Inside, most of her systems were actually much more advanced. To Ringleader levels.
[20:49] *** Basically LM-101 was partly made out of parts very similar to Intruder! However, her primary quantum bluebox wasn't powerful enough in its processing capacity to properly run a Digital Ghost Program.
[20:50] <Dean> Hm, that's very interesting.
[20:51] <Daxter> No kidding. A mass product model housing an advanced AI? Whoever made it didn't know what they were trying to do.
[20:52] *** The Ghost Program is no longer present though
[20:54] <Daxter> Well, whatever program they used for it ain't there anymore.
[20:55] <Dean> Hmm. I wonder if it's possible to extract what's left.
[20:56] <Daxter> If we do, we're gonna need something better that this housing.
[20:56] <Daxter> ^than
[21:00] * Dean appears next to LM-101's body, "Alldrogis, any recommendations?"
[21:05] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> What are you thinking of trying to extract?
[21:07] <Dean> I was considering extracting the AI itself. Daxter and I could not find a Ghost Program inside.
[21:14] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> It's not in there?!
[21:15] <Alan> Could it be a remote control?
[21:16] * Dean looks at Alan, "Unknown. We're trying to determine that."
[21:17] <Daxter> Dean and I didn't find one, Alldi. Like it's no longer existing.
[21:18] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> It would have to be there in order to cause this kind of damage
[21:19] <Zepp-82> Did it delete itself once its purpose was complete?
[21:21] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ...
[21:22] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ANALYSIS COMPLETE!
[21:22] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Beginning manufacture of Kharar variant counteragent!
[21:28] <Daxter> At this point, guys, anything's possible.
[21:30] *** And pause here for the night!
[21:31] *** I need to take care of some things tomorrow, so I won't be able to get on here. We will, however, be able to continue on Monday, and I can confirm that I will NOT have to stay late at work Monday.
[21:31] <Daxter> (( Groovy, man. ))
[21:31] *** So no surprise late-nights for me.
[21:31] *** I'll see you all then and good night.
[21:33] <Zepp-82> (( We'll be waiting~ ))
[19:50] *** AND WE'RE BACK!!!
[19:50] *** In the darkness, you all hear more scuttling approaching.
[19:51] <Zepp-82> Hm?
[19:54] *** THESE THINGS are rapidly approaching by the hundreds, and they all have what appear to me pistol-scale lasers built into their backs!
[19:54] <Sopmod-2> :D
[19:54] <M4A1> :O
[19:54] <ST AR-15> :/
[19:54] <RO-635> O__o
[19:55] <Faria-02> ....oh joy.
[19:55] <Team Anti-Rain> IN DINERGATE WE TRUST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[19:56] <Megan O`Cain> What the...?
[19:56] *** The T-Dolls immediately go NUTS shooting at the approaching swarm of Dinergates! Don't let them get close or their concentrated short-range firepower will actually do some damage!
[19:56] * SFC Iris Gainsburough is still onboard the Queen's Bounty helping out as best she can in the rescue efforts of the kansen
[19:57] * Faria-02 has some of the Descos aid the T-Dolls in vaporizing some of the Dinergates!
[19:59] * Capt. David O`Cain gets out the M372A3 Heavy Storm Bolter, and proceeds to rapidly fire from his shoulder at the Dinergates while Megan fires her M16A4
[20:00] *** The Dinergates are exploding by the dozens, but continue to close the distance slowly through sheer weight of numbers.
[20:00] <Faria-02> ..... we need better firepower.
[20:01] * Megan O`Cain looks at Team Anti-Rain, "Hey! Are these things protected from EMPs?"
[20:02] <RO-635> Not really! In fact, UMP-9's EMP grenades are highly useful against large numbers of targets like these.
[20:04] <Faria-02> EMPs, huh....
[20:04] * Megan O`Cain activates her Jupiter Upgrade, and does the same thing she did earlier on the way to the Fabricator, the forward moving EMP shockwave
[20:05] *** Many Dinergates EXPLODE into flames as their systems overload spectacularly! OH THE HORROR!!
[20:07] <Megan O`Cain> How's that for an EMP?
[20:11] *** Hundreds of Dinergates are on their sides or backs, their little limbs TWI-I-I-I-I-I-ITCHING and smoke and flames wafting out of their ventilation grills.
[20:11] <Faria-02> :O
[20:11] <Faria-02> (I want that!)
[20:11] * Sopmod-2 grabs a Dinergate and CRUSHES it in her hands. >:D
[20:12] <Megan O`Cain> Where'd they come from, anyway?
[20:12] * SPAS-12 blows up another with a point-blank shotgun blast.
[20:13] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> They were probably produced by one of the other Nano-Assemblers elsewhere in this place.
[20:13] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> And give how simple and expendable they are, they can probably be manufactured very, very quickly and in huge numbers. We need to withdraw
[20:14] * Capt. David O`Cain is still firing away at the Dinergates with the Heavy Storm
[20:18] <Faria-02> If we could find that aseembler and shut it down, we might have a better chance..... but that'd be the proverbial "hay in a needle-stack" situation....
[20:21] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> And there's no way to shut down all of them in time.
[20:21] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> They're ALL running now.
[20:21] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> And they're assembling various things and discharging them into the deep sea. Just like those xenos ships earlier.
[20:22] *** LM-101 is STILL making that creepy laugh
[20:26] *** the Forest and Tundra Kits has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:26] <@spiritflame> konbanwa the Forest and Tundra Kits
[20:26] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:26] <Chibi-Leady> Whoa! We got company!
[20:27] * Brickfist is just STOMPING the Dinergates FLAT, and bellowing in laughter as he does so!
[20:27] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:28] *** Another wave of Dinergates surge forward!!
[20:31] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan continue to fire at the Dinergates
[20:31] * Alan decides to use some Dinergate parts to animate a small series of their laser-guns. Turret-time!
[20:35] *** The Dinergates are getting SLAUGHTERED!!! Jeez, it's like something straight out of an old episode of BattleBots! Pieces are flying everywhere and scattering all over the place!!! It's just 100% pure machine-massacre mayhem!!!
[20:35] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a kittttt!
[20:38] * SPAS-12 whips out her ballistic shield and just starts SMACKING Dinergates around with it!
[20:39] * Sopmod-2 suddenly sprouts Fox ears and a fluffy tail...wait, was that SUPPOSED to happen?
[20:40] * the Forest and Tundra Kits are providing FLOOOOOOOOOOF
[20:43] *** A Dinergate gets in close and SHOOTS Megan!
[20:43] *** Another Dinergate gets in close and BLASTS at Alan!
[20:44] *** The rest of the Dinergates are resisting the Fluffiness! They may need to be PUNISHED!!!
[20:45] * Megan O`Cain quickly throws an energy kunai at the Dinergate attacking her after she deftly sidesteps out of the way of the shot
[20:46] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:46] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a kittttt!
[20:48] * RO-635 has suddenly sprouted fox ears! <__<;
[20:48] * Alan brings up a field to catch the shot and return it to sender!
[20:49] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a Fullll kittttt!
[20:50] * AK-12 has now suddenly sprouted fox ears! ^___^
[20:51] <AN-94> Is that supposed to be happening? Because I wouldn't mind having cute ears like that too
[20:52] * Brickfist grabs LM-101 and starts using HER as a club to bash the everloving S[BLEEP]T out of every Dinergate in sight!!!!
[20:53] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a kittttt!
[20:53] * the Forest and Tundra Kits try to FLOOOOOOOOOF a dinergate!
[20:55] *** The Dinergate is knocked onto its side and flails helplessly as it's assaulted!!
[20:59] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :3
[21:00] <Brickfist> WAAAAAGH!!!
[21:01] * Brickfist SMACKS a Dinergate flat with a huge overhead blow using LM-101 as a weapon...and the impact is enough that it HURTS to WATCH!!! Good grief, LM-101 is getting ABUSED!!!!
[21:04] * Alldrogis Valkyvida takes a new cannister out of the Nano-Assembler.
[21:04] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I HAVE IT. Counteragent fully assembled. We need to get out of here.
[21:06] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ALL FORCES WITHDRAW BACK TO THE PORTALS!!!
[21:07] * Chibi-Leady grabs Kagerou and starts dragging back towards the entrance.
[21:08] * Megan O`Cain and David provide a fighting retreat towards a portal
[21:09] * Faria-02 actually tries to replicate the EMP-wave she saw Megan perform..... however due to a few imperfections she mostly ends up making herself dizzy. @_@
[21:09] * The T-Dolls start falling back too.
[21:10] * Alldrogis Valkyvida scoops up Faria-02 and retreats as well. "Come on, Kits. That includes you too."
[21:12] <Brickfist> Waaaa? WE'Z LEAVIN'? BUT DERE'S STILL THINGS TA BREAK!!!
[21:13] <Faria-02> @_@ All the pretty colors...... look so bright.....
[21:14] * Brickfist leaps up and sexily lapdances for LM-101 into the nearest wall and follows everyone else.
[21:15] *** The Yukari-portals are still open and waiting. The remaining Ghost Fox Astartes are waiting as well, laying down suppressing fire with their boltguns.
[21:15] <Faria-02> (( Ah that filter is still there. ))
[21:16] * Brickfist does no dances. Instead he HURLS LM-101 into the wall OVERHAND like she's a ragdool.
[21:17] * LM-101 hits the wall and just PANCAKES across it, her structure smashed beyond repair, her exterior coatings rupturing, and many of her semi-organic systems splattering all over the place like roadkill.
[21:18] * Megan O`Cain and David exit the same portal
[21:18] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Quick! Everyone through the portals!!
[21:18] * Alldrogis Valkyvida transmits a signal to the Hellesponte for another Teleportarium drop.
[21:19] * The Descos and Alan head on towards the portals.
[21:19] *** There's a huge displacement of air and a surge of energy as the Teleport Beam locks on and teleports in something else.
[21:20] *** It's a large boxy device of some kind...oh crap, are those NUCLEAR SYMBOLS ON IT!?!?!
[21:21] * Alldrogis Valkyvida quickly accesses the controls on the device. "I'm setting a sub-atomic demolition mine. 1-kiloton yield. Five minute countdown."
[21:22] <Alan> Going full-on scorched earth?
[21:22] <Capt. David O`Cain> I hope you know what you're doing, Alldrogis!
[21:23] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> We have to prevent the Fabricator for continuing to function the way it has been. Whatever LM-101 set into motion needs to be halted.
[21:24] <Capt. David O`Cain> Understood.
[21:25] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a kittttt!
[21:25] <Kagerou Imaizumi> COME ON, LITTLE FOXES!!! Get a move on!!
[21:25] * Kagerou Imaizumi ushers the Foxes through the Portals.
[21:25] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> oki :D
[21:26] * the Forest and Tundra Kits are all ushered through the portal
[21:26] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> b
[21:26] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a kittttt!
[21:27] * Alan and the Descos head on through.
[21:28] * Kagerou Imaizumi pauses to look back down the hall they all came from.
[21:28] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Al-An...I'm so sorry...
[21:28] <Kagerou Imaizumi> I should...
[21:28] * Brickfist grabs Kagerou and tosses her onto his shoulder.
[21:29] <Brickfist> Da Inquizatur sayz we'z goin'.
[21:29] <Kagerou Imaizumi> HEY WAIT!! WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO SAVE HIM!!!
[21:30] * Kagerou Imaizumi howls and struggles as Brickfist hauls her out.
[21:30] <Chibi-Leady> Alldrogis...what if she's right? Do we have time to?
[21:31] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> NO! GO!
[21:31] *** The last of the ground force withdraws through the Portals.
[21:32] * Alldrogis Valkyvida practically SHOVES Chibi-Leady through a Portal as some of them start to close. Yukari's running out of energy!
[21:32] * Alldrogis Valkyvida heads for the last Portal as he sets the final countdown sequence.
[21:32] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Give my regards to oblivion, Leona Morimoto.
[21:33] *** Alldrogis Valkyvida [Inquisitor [REDACTED]] has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:33] <LM-101> :D
[21:34] * LM-101 just lays there, broken and shattered, still laughing and twitching, unable to move as the minutes tick by.
[21:36] *** All traces of whatever persona and intellect originally drove her has long since been removed and transferred into new forms and new operational platforms unbeknownst to everyone.
[21:37] *** Even through her original objective to create an all-new body capable of housing and operating the Ghost Program failed, she WAS able to fragment it and establish lesser copies, none of which will be able to recreate the original personality or even memories. However, the new bodies will embody memory and personality fragments of the original.
[21:39] *** Now, in the depths of the Void of Planet 4646B A new threat will emerge in time.
[21:44] *** And pause here for the night. Next session will have the last showdown with the Nurglish Leviathan!!
[21:44] *** Tune in next time, and I'll see you all then. Take care and good night.
[19:19] *** FINALLY! WE RETURN!
[19:20] *** In the deep waters before the still-burning battlefield that was fought above, Seatruck 404 slowly comes to a halt...and the insanity is STILL raging inside!
[19:20] <G11> X___x
[19:21] * G11 is still being throttled brutally by Scharnhorst, who is currently winning a butt-kicking contest despite only having ONE leg!
[19:21] * UMP-9 is still out of it. @___@
[19:22] * UMP-45 is still pressed up against the front window and unable to move, especially now that she's got Tundra and Forest Kits crawling everywhere!!
[19:22] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> What the hell?
[19:22] * HK416 has been dragged to the ground and have Forest and Tundra Kits just SWARMING all over her like voracious Army Ants! WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO HER?!?!?!?
[19:23] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> HAH! The Iron Blood gopnik is kicking their asses. XD
[19:25] * Scharnhorst is STILL cursing and swearing like crazy in German. Her language would rival that of Haruka on a normal day, but hearing it spoken in German is just downright TERRIFYING!
[19:31] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> I say she deserves good drink when this is over.
[19:34] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> What I wanna know is what prompted the fighting in there.
[19:41] * UMP-45 is trying to push herself off of the window but Scharnhorst's got her pinned too!
[19:54] * Scharnhorst finally just grabs G11 and UMP-45 by their respective collars and starts SMACKING them both together rapidly and repeatedly.
[19:55] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Anybody wanna handle this? If I go in there, I'm sure she's gonna rip me apart.
[19:55] * Sovetskaya Rossiya goes up to the Sea Truck, and just knocks on the window
[19:57] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a kittttt!
[19:57] *** The Seatruck is currently bobbing in the water, just at the surface. And yes, it's a rockin'
[19:58] * HK416 POOFS!!!!
[19:58] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Oi! Blyat Iron Blood!
[19:58] * HK416 has now been turned into a small silver-furred fox with deep green eyes and a teardrop mark below her left eye!!!
[19:58] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> full kit full fluffy! :D
[19:58] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :3
[19:58] <HK416 (is a kit!)> O__O
[19:59] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:59] * Scharnhorst can't hear you over the noise inside the place. Good grief, just HOW MANY foxes are packed inside that submarine?!
[20:00] * the Forest and Tundra Kits are now many (+1)
[20:02] * Sovetskaya Rossiya sighs, moves a few feet backwards, and then aims her cannons at the Seatruck, "Maybe this will get her attention."
[20:08] <Chapayev> Rossiya, isn't that a bit drastic?
[20:09] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Unless the other kansen or our allies have better ideas, I'll blast the sub open.
[20:12] * UMP-9 finally wakes up and peers upwards dazedly.
[20:17] * UMP-9 glances outside.
[20:17] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> (( Apparently Cbox is gone on my end. ))
[20:18] <UMP-9> Uhhhhh, hello? Who's that outside?
[20:18] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Oi. What is going on in there?
[20:20] <UMP-9> Oh nothing~!!!!
[20:21] <UMP-9> We're just trying to help out with recovering the injured Kansen and one of them is quite disoriented.
[20:21] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Yeah? Then how come an Iron Blood Kansen is kicking your friends' ass?
[20:22] *** Meanwhile, G11 has ceased struggling and is just wailing like a small child as she's getting pounded into the wall while UMP-45 tries to put Scharnhorst into a full nelson hold.
[20:31] <UMP-9> She's just confused~!!
[20:31] <UMP-9> ^___^;
[20:31] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :3
[20:32] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> She doesn't look confused. She looks pissed.
[20:33] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:33] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:{ >:[ >:[ >:[
[20:34] * UMP-9 looks around at the Forest Kits.
[20:34] <UMP-9> Hey, what's wrong with you guys?
[20:37] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> she try beating up friends
[20:41] * Scharnhorst performs a German Suplex on UMP-45 and knocks her the HECK out!
[20:44] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Yup. She's pissed.
[20:52] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> they who hurt friends Bee a kittttt now! >:D
[20:57] * Scharnhorst is standing alone, panting and slowly calming down.
[21:01] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> All better, blyat?
[21:06] <Scharnhorst> - Somewhat -
[21:07] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Now, explain why you were beating up on T-Doll allies?
[21:07] <Scharnhorst> - These SWINE were trying to do something to me while I was incapacitated. -
[21:07] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> What did they try?
[21:10] * Scharnhorst points at the table she'd originally been laying on, and the tech tools that had been laid out. They're the types meant for extracting T-Doll components, not necessarily repairing them
[21:10] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Bee a kittttt!
[21:10] <UMP-9> <__<;
[21:11] * Scharnhorst FLAILS as she's suddenly covered with Kits...including a Facehugger Kit!!
[21:11] * Sovetskaya Rossiya looks at UMP-9, "Speak truthfully."
[21:16] <UMP-9> >__>
[21:17] <UMP-9> <__<
[21:17] * UMP-9 grabs HK416-fox and stuffs her into a waterproof bag, then grabs UMP-45 and G11 and ABANDONS SHIP!!!
[21:18] <Scharnhorst> ...Are they really trying to swim away from us?
[21:19] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> yuppa :D
[21:19] *** And pause here for now since I need to get ready for bed. I'll see you all again tomorrow.
[21:19] *** Good night and thank you for joining.
[21:20] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> (( Night, man. ))
[21:20] *** And for some odd reason it won't let me post anything in the Sidebar. Weird.
[21:22] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> (( I've been getting the same thing. An L-timeout. ))
[19:58] *** And we're back for more!
[19:59] * UMP-9 UMP-45, and G11 finally make it back to the shore of the Island and try to lay low, while also dealing with the contents of a VERY active waterproof bag whose occupant is struggling mightily.
[20:00] <UMP-9> Well that was a bust
[20:00] <UMP-45> ~__~;;
[20:01] <G11> We're screwed. They found out about our Dirty Deed
[20:01] * SFC Iris Gainsburough and the crew of the Queen's Bounty resume their search and rescue
[20:02] *** You've found most of the disabled Kansen, but Bismarck isn't among them
[20:04] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Geez, where the hell is that Kansen?
[20:07] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Anybody find Bismarck yet?
[20:08] <Donovan O`Cain> No luck here, Iris. We've combed these waters thuroughly.
[20:14] <Enterprise> Enterprise calling. The Nurglish Leviathan is on the verge of breaking free. Estimating only a few minutes left before it escapes the caverns.
[20:16] * SFC Iris Gainsburough sighs in disappointment, and recalls the Zodiac boats to prepare the ship for sailing, "We're on our way, Enterprise."
[20:20] *** In the far distance you can hear a low rumble that builds in intensity, then is finally punctuated by a massive wheezing roar as something HUGE tears its way out of the mountainside and into the outside air for the first time in a thousand years!
[20:21] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> The hell is Godzilla doing here?! O_o
[20:27] *** You can't see it yet, but even from this extreme distance you start to detect the scent of something FOUL being carried your way on the winds.
[20:27] * A teleport signature activates on the island off in the distance
[20:36] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Ugh...what the hell is that SMELL?! >_<
[20:37] *** The rest of the Sea-Dolls start moving into position under Shikikan AnTilZha's orders
[20:37] * SFC Iris Gainsburough and the crew of the Queen's Bounty put on masks to filter out the scent
[20:38] *** Biological sensors start to detect trace amounts of various infectious and highly dangerous viruses within the miasma being exuded by that creature. Crap, it's well on its way to mutating into something WORSE
[20:40] * ? swears under their breath....and moves along the island..trying to find someone to meet up with...
[20:41] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Geez. The f[BLEEP]k was letting off that nasty funk?
[20:41] * SFC Iris Gainsburough has the Queen's Bounty sail to Base Island
[20:43] * ? tries to see if there are any signs of inhabitants...
[20:47] * Pyra-98 surfaces, alongside a few other Descos. They could sense the incoming toxins, and have gathered at the ready.
[20:49] *** The island is icy and desolate, populated mostly by strange alien penguin-things and quite a few Tundra Kits.
[20:49] * ? dashes through the undergrowth
[20:49] *** There's also Squad 404 who seem to be trying to lay low.
[20:54] * SFC Iris Gainsburough is still heading towards the island
[20:55] * UMP-45 opens the bag and releases...
[20:55] *** HK416 (is a Kit!) has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:55] <@spiritflame> konbanwa HK416 (is a Kit!)
[20:55] <HK416 (is a Kit!)> :<
[20:58] * ? (can ? see Squad 404?)
[20:59] <UMP-9> So what do we do now?
[20:59] <UMP-45> We'll blend back in with everyone else, then make our way offworld.
[21:06] *** And I'm starting to fall asleep on my end, and since I don't need to get up to go into work tomorrow, I'll finally have a chance to sleep in and deal with this sleep deficit. We'll pick things up again tomorrow. Take care.
[19:45] *** WE'RE BACK!!
[19:48] *** The Nurglish Leviathan howls in the far distance as it pulls itself free from the mountainside.
[19:49] * Alldrogis Valkyvida has arrived back on the Island, along with Chibi-Leady, Brickfist, and everyone else who'd accompanied him into the Fabricator.
[19:49] * ? glances around...trying to find any sign of humanoid life...
[19:49] <Capt. David O`Cain> What the hell was that?
[19:50] <Kagerou Imaizumi> <__<
[19:50] <Kagerou Imaizumi> You took the words right out of my mouth.
[19:51] <Megan O`Cain> Whatever it was had to be huge to make that loud of a noise.
[19:51] * ? keeps on the move
[19:51] <Faria-02> ....just got an update from Pyra-98..... looks like the Plague Leviathan's about to break free....
[19:51] * Kagerou Imaizumi freaks out as she sees several Dolls of Eisenblut coming on-shore to undergo emergency repairs.
[19:52] <Kagerou Imaizumi> EEEP! What are YOU?!
[19:52] * Kagerou Imaizumi points at Faria-02
[19:52] <Faria-02> ........
[19:52] <Megan O`Cain> (in unison with David) Greaaaaat. ~_~
[19:52] * ? moves along the island..
[19:52] * Faria-02 is a Desco-Unit, just like the three that pulled Kagerou's butt to safety.
[19:55] < Capt. David O`Cain> Where is it?
[19:56] <Faria-02> Let's see.... searching for the concentration of toxins and viruses would put it...... somewhere in that direction.
[19:56] <Faria-02> Please stay safe girls....
[19:58] < Capt. David O`Cain> Iris, are the cannons loaded for anti-demonic?
[19:59] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Ready and loaded!
[20:00] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> We are also on our way back. We'll be at Base Island soon.
[20:01] <Capt. David O`Cain> Good. We'll see you here.
[20:01] * ? is now completely lost...but it only serves to piss them off
[20:03] <Capt. David O`Cain> The Queen's Bounty is on its way.
[20:06] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> This is the Inquisitor-Lord to all forces. I've obtained the counteragent for the Leviathan's toxins.
[20:07] <Megan O`Cain> At least we got that before you blew s[BLEEP]t up.
[20:07] *** There's a sudden rumbling from below, and the trembling of an earthquake.
[20:08] <Ionia-33> ...methinks it's about to arrive.
[20:09] <Megan O`Cain> Oh joy...
[20:09] * ? stops in their tracks
[20:11] * Megan O`Cain loads her rifle with anti-demonic rounds
[20:11] *** There's little in the way of tectonic shifting. The blast was powerful, but not powerful enough to blow through the structure making up the Fabricator. However, parts of the Crystal Caverns collapse, burying the entrance you all reached under thousands of tons of crystalline strata
[20:12] <?> ...
[20:13] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I didn't have much choice. The Fabricator had to be shut down. You weren't able to access the systems like I did. LM-101 managed to get many of that facilities' nano-assemblers online, and they were producing units in mass quantities.
[20:15] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yeah? Do you think you got it all?
[20:16] * Capt. David O`Cain makes sure AD rounds are ready
[20:16] * ? moves through the island....trying to find any sign of..someone..anyone
[20:18] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> And much of it has been released into the deep ocean
[20:18] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan are at a set of small buildings being used as a base, and are with some Marines
[20:19] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Reisen Udongein Inaba is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[20:19] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Hey? Who's that?
[20:19] * Reisen Udongein Inaba points at someone moving along the shore.
[20:20] *** In the distance, there's multiple faint BOOMS as elements of Eagle Union and Sakura Empire begin long-range bombardment of the Plague Leviathan.
[20:20] <Capt. David O`Cain> Eh?
[20:20] * ? walks out of the shadows....
[20:20] * ? puts their hands on their hips...
[20:20] * ? is now known as Masaki O`Cain
[20:20] <Masaki O`Cain> about time I found you bunch
[20:20] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> We need to get the countertoxin INTO the Leviathan.
[20:21] <Capt. David O`Cain> Masaki?! O_o
[20:21] <Ionia-33> ???
[20:21] * Masaki O`Cain runs over and immediatly gives David a kiss
[20:22] * Capt. David O`Cain kisses Masaki back
[20:22] <Capt. David O`Cain> How did you get here? I thought you were at home.
[20:24] * Masaki O`Cain shows her wrist..there's a device on it
[20:24] <Masaki O`Cain> some sort of matter transport thing...stole it off an alien criminal..had to break his arm in two places to get it off
[20:24] <Capt. David O`Cain> I see.
[20:25] * Ionia-33 just blinks. (What an aggressive lady.....)
[20:26] <Masaki O`Cain> cause f[BLEEP]king hell i'm not letting you out of my sight again
[20:27] <Capt. David O`Cain> Look, I had no idea I would be gone for so long. And I'm sorry.
[20:28] * Masaki O`Cain gives david another kiss
[20:28] <Masaki O`Cain> what the f[BLEEP]k is going on
[20:31] <Capt. David O`Cain> Well, presently we got a big demon problem. One BIG demon.
[20:32] *** The Plague Leviathan howls in the distance as it's struck by multiple salvos of Anti-Demonic rounds
[20:32] <Megan O`Cain> Masaki? When did you get here?
[20:34] * Masaki O`Cain cracks her knuckles
[20:34] <Masaki O`Cain> I could use some fun
[20:34] * Masaki O`Cain goes over the story again
[20:34] <Megan O`Cain> And it sounds like some of the kansen are doing work.
[20:36] <Capt. David O`Cain> Which group? It can't be the Iron Blood schmucks. They need fixing.
[20:38] *** A swarm of drones fly overhead, and in the distance you hear the insane laughter of a CERTAIN foxgirl carrier.
[20:38] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan follow the sound of laughter
[20:39] <Masaki O`Cain> eh?
[20:39] <Capt. David O`Cain> The hell?
[20:39] * Masaki O`Cain follows after them
[20:43] <Ionia-33> ....uh oh.
[20:43] * Ionia-33 and the other Descos follow.
[20:45] <~> Ohhhhh dear
[20:47] *** The Carrier-girls of the Sakura Empire look VERY eager to show off what they can do!
[20:47] <Megan O`Cain> Somebody's full of themselves.
[20:49] <Yusa-44> can only hope their.... zealous nature doesn't get them riddled with holes.
[20:50] <Forest Kit> Bee a kittttt!
[20:52] <HK416 (is a Kit)> I'm already a Kit, you insane freaks!!!!!!!! >:O
[20:53] <Forest Kit> :3
[20:53] * Forest Kit (2) try cuddling with HK416 :3 :3
[20:55] * HK416 (is a Kit) just sits in defeat, allowing the Forest Kits to crawl all over her.
[20:57] *** Meanwhile, the Sakura Empire is BLASTING the Leviathan, making quite a mess of things but causing it to retreat from the ocean.
[20:58] * Forest Kit all trill :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:58] <Forest Kit> Kits be happy, and fluffy and adorable, and snuggleable and lovable, and lots lots cute! :D
[20:59] * The Queen's Bounty blasts a horn as it approaches Base Island
[20:59] <Masaki O`Cain> ..well
[21:01] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hah! There they are.
[21:03] <Megan O`Cain> Yup. Shall we board?
[21:03] * Megan O`Cain and David head towards the shoreline
[21:05] * UMP-9 snuggles a Kit! :D
[21:05] <UMP-45> Hey! Why'd you little guys turn on us?! We thought you were in on the whole plan!!
[21:11] * SFC Iris Gainsburough takes the ship to the shore
[21:16] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Hey, folks! Come on board!
[21:18] * Alldrogis Valkyvida quickly boards, carrying the counteragent
[21:19] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Hurry. We need to get in closer to that thing
[21:19] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan walk up the gang plank
[21:20] * Yusa-44 and a few of the Descos do board the ship. Some of the others, like Ionia-33, decide to stay in the water around the ship.
[21:20] *** And let us pause here for the night. As for tomorrow, let's play it by ear. I don't have any specific plans for tomorrow, but I know that some of you might.
[21:20] *** So we'll see what's going on with that, and I'll see you tomorrow either way. Good night everyone
[18:55] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> we no be aware :O
[19:24] *** And we're back!!!
[19:25] *** The Kansen soar over the water at high speed, remaining in formation as they close the distance on the distant high, icy cliffs.
[19:27] * Capt. David O`Cain sets course for the Queen's Bounty to head after the Nurgle Leviathan
[19:27] <Capt. David O`Cain> FULL SPEED AHEAD, HELMSMAN!
[19:28] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Has anyone managed to get a visual on the Leviathan yet?
[19:29] *** In the distance you can all hear the blasts of cannons and blasters going out, maintaining a constant barrage against the Leviathan to make it recoil.
[19:32] <Capt. David O`Cain> Sounds like somebody does, Al.
[19:33] * The Descos follow behind in the water.
[19:36] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I mean close up from a range of just a few hundred feet.
[19:37] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> If we're going to get this counteragent into that thing, we need to determine the best way of introducing it.
[19:37] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Because I doubt it'll just drink this stuff if we ask nicely.
[19:42] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> we no know about plan! :O
[19:43] * Masaki O`Cain cracks her knuckles..which spark with red lightening
[19:44] * Alldrogis Valkyvida looks down at the Forest and Tundra Kits. "You little ones certainly get around."
[19:45] * Alldrogis Valkyvida shows the Foxes the sealed cannister he's carrying. "This contains specially programmed nanopaste to counteract and destroy the Kharar virus that the Plague Leviathan is carrying. But in order to deliver it to that thing, we need to figure out what part of its body is the weakest."
[19:45] <Megan O`Cain> We could try using a big syringe and fire it at the damn thing.
[19:46] <Springfield> Anyone got a big ol' syringe?
[19:50] *** There's a HUGE crash up ahead as the Plague Leviathan does something out of sight. The fog is thick in the distance, and you can just make out the shapes of several icebergs ahead.
[19:51] <Megan O`Cain> That's just great. ~_~
[19:53] * Capt. David O`Cain tries opening a vid-window large enough for the crew to see what's ahead of the ship via UV-FLIR
[19:55] *** Ahead, you can see a few icebergs sitting in the water, massive as mountains.
[19:56] <Capt. David O`Cain> A whole bunch of icebergs.
[19:56] * Tirpitz points at one of the icebergs with her remaining arm. "That one. We actually hollowed that one out some time ago. We'd detected mineral veins contained inside and we used the interior space as a reserve magazine."
[19:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> No nasty surprises?
[19:58] <Kagerou Imaizumi > I know. During our exploration we came across it and made off with the magnetite and silver inside.
[20:02] <Fujiwara no Mokou> Yup!
[20:03] <Fujiwara no Mokou> And we helped ourselves to a lot of those munitions to blow the crap out of the Ice Wyrms and Snow Stalkers when we were exploring the Ice Plains.
[20:03] <Tirpitz> ...
[20:04] <Tirpitz> - Ich freue mich, dass es Ihnen Spaß gemacht hat, sie zu benutzen. -
[20:04] *** Suddenly something soars through the air high above you all!
[20:05] <Zepp-82> ???
[20:05] <Capt. David O`Cain> The hell?!
[20:09] *** CRAP! That's a damn BOULDER!!!
[20:12] <Capt. David O`Cain> Where'd that even come from?!
[20:14] *** The hurled boulder sails over the Queen's Bounty and hits the water behind you with a massive CRUNCH. Oh no...
[20:14] *** Reno has left #suburbansenshi3 (Signal lost.)
[20:14] *** Bremerton has left #suburbansenshi3 (Signal lost)
[20:15] *** Princeton has left #suburbansenshi3 (Signal lost)
[20:15] <Megan O`Cain> Christ...
[20:16] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> All units, break formation and spread out. The Plague Leviathan is clearly much more intelligent than we thought.
[20:17] *** More boulders soar through the air overhead, but instead of a single large one it's a bunch of smaller ones, hurled in a kind of rough "scatter-shot" method.
[20:17] * Capt. David O`Cain turns to his crew, "Get those Phalanx online now! Track and fire at those boulders!"
[20:18] *** Tracking...
[20:19] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:23] * Capt. David O`Cain has the Queen's Bounty continue moving forward while the Phalanx CIWS fire at the boulders
[20:23] <Capt. David O`Cain> No way I'm letting some overgrown fish/salamander stop me!
[20:27] *** The barrage of most-shattered boulders comes down, and you catch sight of ONE Eagle Union light cruiser girl take a blow to her forehead that sends her tumbling forward into the water where she belly-flops, tumbles, summersaults. and finally WIPES OOOOOUUUTTT in a way that only Demons from the Netherverse could probably fully appreciate.
[20:28] *** San Diego has left #suburbansenshi3 ([Signal Lost] OOooooooOOoOOOoOOOooowWWWwwwIIIiiiIIIEeeeEEEeee~!!!!)
[20:35] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan fire their Delta Busters at the boulders flying overhead in addition to the anti-air fire
[20:38] * Zepp-82 has a few Descos dive down to retrieve any girls that sink. Meanwhile, some of the other Descos intend to help shoot down any boulders that try to get too close to the group.
[20:47] *** You quickly find the sunk Kansen. They're not destroyed by any means, but getting hit by those big pieces of ice and rock certainly did damage.
[20:49] * The Descos quickly go to retrieve her and get her to safety.
[20:50] *** But there's ONE Kansen who's still missing in action.
[20:51] *** And...elsewhere...
[20:51] *** She thrashes and struggles vigorously as the weight of her ruined Rig pulls her further and further down towards darkness.
[20:52] *** The explosion caused by her overheating Rig detonating some of her missiles inflicted severe damage upon her body.
[20:53] *** Her legs don't work, and what's left of her Rig is not only useless, but she's unable to disengage herself from it.
[20:54] * Bismarck looks downwards...
[20:55] *** She's over the VOID. She's nowhere NEAR the edge of the continental shelf! Below her the ocean bottom drops away steeply into the abyss, thousands of feet deep...and already something shifts in that awful darkness.
[20:56] <Bismarck> ...
[20:56] <Bismarck> - From the lightning of the tempest...dear Father, deliver us. -
[20:57] <Bismarck> - From plague, temptation, and war...dear Father, deliver us. -
[20:59] <Bismarck> - From the blasphemy of the fallen...dear Father, deliver us. -
[20:59] <Bismarck> - From the scourge of the Kraken... -
[21:00] * Bismarck looks down below. Oh dear god that Chelicerate of TEN TIMES LARGER than anything spotted near the coast!!
[21:01] <Bismarck> - Dear Father, deliver me!!! >__< -
[21:04] *** And with this cliffhanger, let us pause for the night! We shall continue tomorrow for the final battle with the Leviathan of Nurgle!
[19:53] *** And we are back!!!!
[19:54] *** The Battleship-girls continue to lay down a constant long-range barrage while drones continue to swarm through the skies, raining down mini-bombs and missiles on the distant Plague Leviathan
[19:59] * Capt. David O`Cain continues to have the Queen's Bounty press forward as F/A-9 Skyhawks fire anti-demonic munitions at the Plague Leviathan while the Airwolf-AHs use the AD variant of Shrike missiles from their underside launchers
[20:01] *** David, you're actually getting live images of that thing now!
[20:06] * Capt. David O`Cain and his crew all brace as the ship makes a tight turn to the right, aiming the port side cannons at the Leviathan
[20:07] <Faria-02> ....that thing is giant..... and ugly.
[20:08] * Capt. David O`Cain waits for the ship to finish making its turn, and the crew loading all ten cannons that are aimed at the Leviathan
[20:09] *** The creature is beyond massive. It's well over 200 feet in length and looks vaguely like a reptilian honey-badger, with long claws, and flexible tail, a hide like a rhinoceros, and a heavily-reinforced head with a massively-fanged maw.
[20:10] *** What's worse, its hide is speckled with huge cysts and blisters, all filled with a bright green-yellow pus very similar to what the Kits had when they got infected with the Kharar virus years ago.
[20:11] *** This thing is also starting to mutate. Its hide seems to be developing giant lesions and sores, and its abdomen looks like it's swelling to the point of almost dragging on the ground. Its eyes look like they're weeping blood and cloudy with cataracts.
[20:11] * Capt. David O`Cain draws Legionnaire from his back, and takes a pause
[20:14] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Cannons are ready at your command, David.
[20:16] * Capt. David O`Cain points his sword at the Plague Leviathan, "OPEN FIRE ALL CANNONS!" and the cannons begin their barrage of HEAD artillery rounds upon the demon
[20:23] *** The Plague Leviathan shudders and writhes as it takes more hits, pieces of it blowing off in semi-liquid chunks that splatter everything around it.
[20:25] * Capt. David O`Cain curses out the Leviathan in Selenite as the cannons continue firing
[20:26] * Sovetskaya Rossiya and her battleship comrades fire their cannons at the Plague Leviathan, "EAT SHELL, CYKA!"
[20:28] *** The Plague Leviathan flings another massive handful of icy debris at the distant Kansen!
[20:30] * The Queen's Bounty fires its Phalanx CIWS guns at the debris in an effort to protect the Kansen as best as possible
[20:33] * Faria-02 has the other Descos aid the Queen's Bounty in protecting the other Kansen.
[20:34] * Burroughs is monitoring the situation from above...... and she's getting some ideas.
[20:35] *** The Phalanx's barrage of fire helps break up the mass of projectiles, reducing the damage potential
[20:36] *** Aoba has left #suburbansenshi3 ( "Craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap~!" [Signal Lost])
[20:36] *** Fusou has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Whaaaaaaaaaa?!" [Signal Lost])
[20:39] *** Cygnet has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Papa! Where are you?!" [Signal Lost])
[20:40] * The Queen's Bounty crew keeps on firing HEAD rounds at the Leviathan while the CIWS guns shoot at the incoming debris
[20:40] *** Minsk has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Wait! Wait! Waaaaaaaaaaaah!!!" [Signal lost])
[20:41] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> From what I can see of that thing, we need to get this counteragent as close to the Leviathan's core as possible.
[20:44] <Capt. David O`Cain> Other than sailing up to the damn thing, got any ideas?
[20:44] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> No, we shouldn't do that. Look.
[20:46] * Alldrogis Valkyvida points at the viewscreen showing the Leviathan. It's surrounded by a thick fog of greyish vapor that at first looks like it's part of any of the icy powder-haze that gets kicked up by this place's frequent windstorms.
[20:48] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> That's pure plague toxin right there. And if it's being generated by the essence of Nurgle, whatever that is likely acts as both a poison and an acid.
[20:48] <Capt. David O`Cain> Then what do you suggest? A bomb?
[20:49] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> A missile WOULD work well. Or a giant hypodermic needle that could be hurled with pure Spartan accuracy like a certain scene from "300".
[20:52] <Capt. David O`Cain> Okay.
[20:54] * Alldrogis Valkyvida peers over at the Descos and their friends from the Netherverse. "Suggestions?:
[21:01] <Durand> Hm... and where is the Leviathan's core in relation to its body?
[21:02] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> By core I mean center mass.
[21:03] <Durand> Ah, so like close to where its heart would be?
[21:03] * Alldrogis Valkyvida points at the creature's image and indicates the center of its main body. "Right where the greatest concentration of its internal organs are. We haven't seen any autopsies or any kind of examinations of that thing, but based upon Planeta del Agua's fauna, its anatomical makeup is partially similar to terrestrial creatures."
[21:05] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Given how massive that thing is, it's very likely to have multiple redundancies. I wouldn't be surprised if it has more than one heart. With something that big it would make sense if it had a bunch of micro-hearts all synched together."
[21:05] <Durand> Hm, true. If we had a way to pin it down so as to ensure a clean hit from the counteragent.....
[21:05] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> The counteragent is nanopaste, so it just needs to be delivered as deeply into its body as possible.
[21:09] <Burroughs> ....I think I have an idea. That thing is swirling with all manners of toxins, plagues and other sorts of nasty things, yes?
[21:11] <Burroughs> Well, assuming my database is up to code, I might have something that could turn those plagues in our favor.
[21:12] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Oh? Say on.
[21:14] <Capt. David O`Cain> We're all ears, Burroughs.
[21:15] <Burroughs> They say back during the second Krichevskoy debate, the Jack'o Lantern demons had developed an ability to turn any kind of abnormality into a powerful boon. The strongest known toxins in the Netherworld could heal them. Being paralyzed or put to sleep would heighten their reflexes. Getting hit with an otherwise debilitating stroke of amnesia or weakening could make them practically unstoppable.
[21:16] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Paradox.
[21:17] <Burroughs> Indeed, but such is the ways of the Netherworld.
[21:19] <Burroughs> Anyway, I should be able to transmit the data on down to you all, and from there you ought to be able to set it to work. As for the Descos....
[21:20] * Faria-02 's eyes go WIDE as she begins receiving information.
[21:20] <Faria-02> Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa----
[21:21] <Burroughs> A little something from Haru. She found a way to unlock the old Demon Fusion techniques that were used during the Hades incident.
[21:24] <Burroughs> With these in combination, you should be able to pin down big and ugly to give him his medicine.
[21:28] <Burroughs> SHall we give it a try?
[21:28] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Go for it.
[21:28] <Burroughs> Very well. Transmitting now!
[21:29] *** Let's pause here for the night since it's late on my end and I still have to work in the morning.
[21:29] *** We'll pick this up at the same point tomorrow, then we'll END the Plague Leviathan for good!
[19:20] *** And we are back!!
[19:21] * Chibi-Leady continues to watch the proceedings from the bow, fidgeting and fuming.
[19:22] * Capt. David O`Cain is barking orders onboard the Queen's Bounty as the guns and cannons continue firing
[19:24] * Burroughs begins transmitting the data --- firstly, the Jack 'o Lantern's power to reverse the power of ailments. It comes down as..... a bunch of Scrolls? Wut---
[19:26] <Chibi-Leady> So what exactly are you doing now?
[19:26] <Brickfist> Weez just need ta git a great big trukk! Then drive on up...THEN RUN DAT TING OVAR!!!
[19:27] * Faria-02 walks over to pick up and read one of the Scrolls --- only for it to suddenly glow slightly before disappearing into her head!
[19:28] <Faria-02> @_@ All The Pretty Colors
[19:28] <Megan O`Cain> Eh? You doing alright?
[19:30] <Kagerou Imaizuki> Did you just magically insert that knowledge into your brain?
[19:30] <Faria-02> ....whoa, I've heard of absorbing information, but that was a bit too literal for my tastes.
[19:31] * Faria-02 blinks a few times, mostly to get rid of those pretty dancing lights.
[19:32] <Megan O`Cain> So, what did Burroughs give you?
[19:34] <Faria-02> The Scroll has informed me.... of how we can turn that Leviathan's plague into power. Won't lie, I am NOT fond of the idea of getting close to that thing, but if this works as intended, we ought to be able to end that thing once and for all.
[19:35] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Plague into power? How so?
[19:37] <Faria-02> Lemme see.... it's not easy to put into words, but it seems with this technique we can take the toxins and other plagues, and filter them through ourselves and convert them into boons.
[19:37] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Are you certain that would work as advertised against a fragment of the Primordial Annihilator?
[19:39] <Megan O`Cain> Can we still eliminate the demon, though?
[19:40] <Faria-02> This is, quite honestly, a hell of a gamble. Regardless, we can't simply sit here and let that oversized handbag turn this planet into a walking wasteland once again.
[19:43] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> What do you need from me?
[19:45] <Sigma-3> .....I wonder..... is there a way we could drive it into a corner, of sorts? Maybe find a location where its options to attack are limited?
[19:47] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> As a matter of fact there are.
[19:48] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> If we bring in the Normandy to assist we might be able to trap it inside one of the dead-end gorges in the area.
[19:49] <Megan O`Cain> Where did the Normandy go, anyway?
[19:50] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> They were engaging another xeno battlegroup further out in the ocean.
[19:54] <Megan O`Cain> There was a second fleet? How did we not pick that up?
[19:56] <Alan> They must've had a method to fly under the radar, so to say.
[19:59] <Durand> Either way, time simply is not on our side.
[20:03] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> More like that second fleet was the better part of fifty miles offshore.
[20:04] <Durand> Stragglers, perhaps?
[20:04] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Father's already ordered the Normandy to divert back to our location. How can I deploy Azur Lane to assist you?
[20:07] <Megan O`Cain> Other than play sheepherder, I don't know what else besides killing the damn thing.
[20:14] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> We can certainly do that!
[20:14] * Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan) starts sending out the orders!
[20:15] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Battleship and battlecruisers, maintain staggered bombardment against the Leviathan. I'm assigning group designations to you all now.
[20:16] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Cruiser and Destroyer girls, begin rapid redeployment to the inland bay. It may try to retreat in that direction. Be ready to drive it back if it does so.
[20:17] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Da, will do, comrade Shikikan!
[20:19] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Carrier girls, reorganize into three strike forces. I'm downloading assignments to you now. Alternate attack waves; one group attacks while the other rearms. Keep the Leviathan off-guard and distracted.
[20:20] *** The reassignments are downloaded...and immediately cause some unexpected reactions!!
[20:21] *** One Carrier-girl of the Sakura Empire, an attractive white-haired nine-tailed foxgirl with dark blue eyes, is assigned to the same group with a small, slender lavender-haired Light Carrier girl from the Royal Navy.
[20:21] <Kaga> <__<
[20:22] <Unicorn> >__>
[20:23] *** And in the other group a silver-haired, purple-eyed Carrier-girl is assigned alongside a dark-haired, red-eyed, nine-tailed foxgirl from the Sakura Empire.
[20:23] <Enterprise> >:(
[20:23] <Akagi> >:O
[20:25] <Megan O`Cain> Antil, anything doing for the Skyhawks and Airwolves?
[20:26] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Maintain continuous attacks on it. Try to keep it pinned down and away from the ocean.
[20:28] <Megan O`Cain> Understood.
[20:28] <Donovan O`Cain> You got it, Antil. We'll keep up the pressure.
[20:32] <~> Und vhat can we do in the meantime?
[20:33] *** Someone has hopped up onboard the Queen's Bounty...[URL=}And what's with the theme music all of a sudden?[/url]
[20:34] *** Let's try that again, shall we?
[20:35] * Prinz Eugen just invited herself onboard!
[20:36] * Capt. David O`Cain looks at Eugen, "Which ship class are you?"
[20:40] <Prinz Eugen> Heavy Cruiser. And proud of it. ^__~
[20:43] <Capt. David O`Cain> Well, considering the standing order for Cruisers and Destroyers, your job's to redeploy to the inland bay. Unless he gave you other instructions.
[20:45] <Prinz Eugen> I am also dropping off this little one.
[20:45] * Prinz Eugen reaches behind her neck and gently pulls off the Tundra Kit that was clinging to the back of her beck.
[20:46] * Prinz Eugen carefully places the little Tundra Kit upon Chibi-Leady's head.
[20:46] <Prinz Eugen> There. She looks much more amusing now. ^___^
[20:46] <Chibi-Leady> >:(
[20:50] <Capt. David O`Cain> Heh.
[20:56] <Prinz Eugen> Such a sour-faced girl. I do hope she won't upset your lives too much now that the conflict is over.
[20:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> We'll see. It depends on how the kits themselves feel.
[21:02] * Meanwhile, the Descos have sorted through the information Burroughs beamed down to them. While some are more than a little hesitant about this, they know they must act upon it..... and so begin.......
[21:05] *** And here's a good cliffhanging point for us to pause at. Good night, everyone. And I'll see you all tomorrow for the continuation.
[21:05] *** Thank you and good night.
[19:04] *** AND WE ARE BACK AND READY TO GO! If anyone needs a few minutes to get ready, feel free to let me know
[19:08] <Capt. David O`Cain> (( I'm ready whenever, man. ))
[19:25] <The Descos> (( Ready ))
[19:26] * Prinz Eugen hops off the deck, pauses for a minute or so on the water, then suddenly accelerates to the north.
[19:33] <Chibi-Leady> >:(
[19:33] * Chibi-Leady still has a Tundra Kit clinging to the back of her head, resting its little head atop hers.
[19:33] <Chibi-Leady> I always HATED her.
[19:34] <Tundra Kit> :3
[19:37] <Capt. David O`Cain> There's a high smugness level about her. Like her ego needs lowering by a few pegs.
[19:37] <Tundra Kit> she needs to be a kit? :D
[19:39] <Alan> .....I almost want to see her get covered in the Plague Leviathan's muck, solely so I could take pictures and upload them to my Nethergram.
[19:45] <Chibi-Leady> Heh
[19:45] <Chibi-Leady> Now what do we do next?
[19:45] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> How much more time is needed to set things up?
[19:47] <Durand> If you're meaning the Descos undergoing that "Fusion"---
[19:47] * The water around the ship suddenly grows turbulent.....
[19:49] <Durand> ....I believe the main event is about to begin.
[19:50] * Holy Balls! From the waves, a Gigantic Desco begins to emerge like a Kaiju!
[19:51] <Capt. David O`Cain> Niiiice.
[19:51] <Megan O`Cain> That Leviathan's soooo dead.
[19:53] <Giga-Desco> GAAAAAAAOOOOOOO
[19:54] * Giga-Desco begins to drift on over towards the Plague Leviathan! For a being of its size it can move pretty fast! Hope you can keep up!
[19:54] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ...Gaaaaoo?
[19:55] <Chibi-Leady> ...WHAT THE F[BLEEP]K IS THAT?!??!
[19:55] <Giga-Desco> GAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOO!!
[19:56] *** The Plague Leviathan is currently still being bombarded by dozens of Kansen and is trying to get some distance between it and the annoying barrages. It's also starting to look even WORSE than before.
[19:58] * Capt. David O`Cain has the Queen's Bounty follow the gigantic Desco while the Skyhawks and Airwolves continue using their anti-demonic munitions upon the Plague Leviathan
[19:59] * Giga-Desco prepares to enter the fight..... and it's only appropriate we get some appropriate music for this clash!
[20:01] * The Nurglish Leviathan sees the creature coming towards it and makes a wheezing howl.
[20:04] * The Nurglish Leviathan starts to gallop towards the Giga-Desco!
[20:04] <Giga-Desco> GAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOO!!!
[20:04] * Giga-Desco begins picking up speed, intending to meet the diseased snake head-on!
[20:04] <The Nurglish Leviathan> - REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEH~!!! -
[20:05] * The Nurglish Leviathan suddenly pivots and WHIPS its tail around to smack at Giga-Desco's head!
[20:07] * Giga-Desco sprouts a large tendril to deflect the bloe!
[20:08] <Giga-Desco> * blow
[20:09] * Giga-Desco tries to her own tail to knock the Leviathan down!
[20:14] * The Nurglish Leviathan staggers, but doesn't seem overtly affected by the blow.
[20:14] * The Nurglish Leviathan lashes out with its claws, flailing and raking with talons the size of small cars.
[20:15] * Giga-Desco sprouts more tendrils --- some to defend, others to try and spear this snake in any vital areas.
[20:16] * The Nurglish Leviathan is speared...and CRAP! DOES THIS THING NOW HAVE ACID FOR BLOOD?! Because that's what its blood seems to have now been converted into!
[20:16] * Tundra Kit swishes its tail :3
[20:18] <Giga-Desco> GAAAAAAAOOOOOO!
[20:19] * Giga-Desco is splashed by some of this acidic blood..... yet it seems ready to keep going! Some of its tendrils come around to attack the Leviathan from other angles --- it's going to try and pin it down!
[20:20] * The Nurglish Leviathan leaps onto the Giga-Desco and attempts to start goring and biting! And it's making this really nasty gasping sound now.
[20:21] * Giga-Desco 's eyes light up--- right before letting loose a nasty, blinding flash of light! At nigh point-blank range you know it's going to HURT!!
[20:22] * Capt. David O`Cain waits for the right moment to order the Queen's Bounty to fire a volley at the Leviathan
[20:23] * The Nurglish Leviathan suddenly VOMITS all over the Giga-Desco's FACE and UPPER BODY!! Oh god, it's barfing up THOUSANDS of gallons of semi-liquid chunks that burn like fire, stink like HELL, and riddled with flesh-eating bacteria the likes of which this galaxy has NEVER SEEN!!!
[20:24] *** Even worse, the bacteria has been contaminated by Warp-energy AND supernaturally enhanced by the power of Nurgle.
[20:27] * Giga-Desco is vomited upon...... the secret technique bestowed upon them by Burroughs's scrolls is going to work, readying itself to begin turning this into a boon. It sends out more tendrils, trying to maneuver itself at the same time to pin the Leviathan down and give David's group a shot at administering the counteragent!
[20:29] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Now. All Carriers, begin concentrated drone strikes.
[20:30] *** The drones of the Carrier-girls suddenly regroup and start diving towards the Nuglish Leviathan. They start attacking in a non-stop wave, emptying all of their munitions into a single point in the side of the Leviathan, stripping away more and more of its hide and deeper and deeper into the tissue beneath.
[20:31] * The Nurglish Leviathan CHOMPS onto the Giga-Desco and starts trying to tear out a huge chunk of it.
[20:32] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Battleship, battlecruiser, and heavy cruiser girls...commence bombardment on the designated side of the Leviathan. Tear that hole in its side larger.
[20:32] * Giga-Desco retaliates with an eye-beam.... hopefully right into the Leviathan's own eyes! Wanna know a real good way to seal up certain injuries and sores? Cauterization!!
[20:33] *** The Nurglish Leviathan shrieks as the beam starts searing its infected skin! IT BURNS! IT BURNS!!
[20:33] * Capt. David O`Cain order the cannons on his ship to fire more anti-demonic shells
[20:34] * Sovetskaya Rossiya and her comrades fires at the Leviathan with all they've got
[20:37] *** The Kansen start firing and firing, maintaining a constant barrage that continues to pound it...and an occasional shell or missile accidentally goes wide and hits the Giga-Desco too.
[20:39] *** The Nurglish Leviathan keeps CHOMPING and...DAMMIT, DID IT JUST POOP ALL OVER THE PLACE TOO?!!?
[20:39] * Giga-Desco decides to use this opportunity to spear the Leviathan with more tendrils --- all to keep it from being able to escape its incoming fate!!
[20:43] *** It's pinned!!!
[20:43] <Giga-Desco> NOW!!
[20:44] * Alldrogis Valkyvida suddenly FLAPS his wings and flies HIGH into the air, then power-dives towards the Giga-Desco.
[20:48] * Alldrogis Valkyvida HURLS the Counteragent cannister towards the Giga-Desco! "DRIVE THAT INTO ITS BODY AS FAR AS POSSIBLE!"
[20:50] * Giga-Desco uses a free hand to grab the canister..... and then SLAM IT INTO THAT MOTHERF[BLEEP]KER WITH ALL THE FURY OF A RAKSASHA DEMON!!
[20:51] *** Where are you aiming that thrust, Giga-Desco?
[20:53] * Giga-Desco is aiming it right for the big wound everyone made. This is going to HURT!
[20:57] *** SHOOMP!!!!!
[20:57] *** The counteragent has been plunged ALL THE WAY IN!!
[20:58] *** Giga-Desco, you can feel the cannister disintegrate as the nano-paste activates and quickly starts to spread with explosive swiftness! The sensation is actually somewhat painful.
[20:58] *** The Nurglish Leviathan stiffens and shudders.
[20:59] *** The Nurglish Leviathan starts to SWELL!
[20:59] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Ah pizdec.
[21:00] <Giga-Desco> Ohhh nooo!
[21:00] * Giga-Desco quickly works to disengage and get away from that thing!
[21:02] * The Nurglish Leviathan keeps swelling and swelling like a balloon, making all kinds of weird sounds as it does so, the nano-paste replicating and expanding to encapsulate EVERY cell and microbe inside and outside its body, counteracting every TRACE of the Kharar as well as anything else it might be carrying.
[21:04] *** Suddenly, there's a pause of several seconds, then what happens at 3:32 occurs without warning.
[21:05] <Giga-Desco> ........ewwwwwwwwwww
[21:06] *** HUGE pieces of Leviathan blubber are scattered far and wide....and a RAIN of LEVIATHAN SLUDGE DESCENDS FROM THE SKY!!!!
[21:07] * Sheffield is at Anxiety Level 1% "This is..."
[21:07] * Ayanami is at Anxiety Level 10% "...going to be a problem."
[21:08] * Takao is at Anxiety Level 99% "IT'S ALL COMING THIS WAY!!!!!!!!"
[21:08] <Chibi-Leady> Ahhhhhh! Get to cover!
[21:09] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Crap-oh-crap-oh-crap-oh-crap!!!
[21:09] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> INCOMING!
[21:12] <Capt. David O`Cain> Ohhh shiiiiit...
[21:12] *** The putrid deluge comes down on EVERYONE, splattering the land and the sea for an entire MILE in all directions from where the Nurglish Leviathan has met its demise!
[21:14] *** The threat of the Plague Leviathan has been ENDED!!! Whatever plan that LM-101 had for it has been THWARTED!
[21:18] <Megan O`Cain> We may have armor on, little brother, but ewwwwwww.
[21:18] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Groooooooss. >_<
[21:19] *** And by all that's holy and UNHOLY the stench is beyond description.
[21:19] <Admiral Hipper> AHHHHHHHHHHH!! SAVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
[21:19] <Prinz Heinrich> NIEN! NIEN! NIEN! NIEN!
[21:20] <Durand> ....Miss Burroughs, send home a message for the shower units to be up and ready.
[21:20] * Prinz Eugen is currently SPEECHLESS (for once). O___o
[21:20] *** The Deluge comes down and SPLATTERS EVERYONE!!
[21:20] * Alan takes this opportunity to snap that picture of Prinz Eugen covered in filth...... and it's immediately going right onto his Nethergram account!
[21:21] <Donovan O`Cain> funktified...big time.
[21:21] * Prinz Eugen is ENGULFED in sludge like that one guy in Ghostbusters who got completely DRENCHED by the blown-up Stay-Puft Marshmellow Man!!
[21:23] <Tundra Kit> :3
[21:24] * ~ Bismarck continues to sink further and further downwards into the darkness of the Void
[21:25] *** Bismarck keeps trying to swim, but it's hopeless. But as she sinks...
[21:26] * U-556 GRABS onto one of Bismarck's arms and starts trying to pull her upwards, even as a wave of displaced water flows past them both from below. Something is RISING UP from beneath them!!!
[21:27] *** Sea Emperor Juvenile has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:27] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Sea Emperor Juvenile
[21:28] * The Giga-Desco suddenly splits back into its component Descos --- all 26 of them.... and they do NOT look happy. Some begin trying to get themselves cleaned up, while others are trying to rid themselves of that sick feeling --- even with the special Evility Scroll, this stuff still makes 'em feel a bit ill.
[21:28] * Sea Emperor Juvenile rises up underneath Bismarck and catches her on her head, then starts to carefully rise to the surface with her.
[21:28] <Forest Kit> Friend! :D
[21:29] <U-556> U-556 to all of Eisenblut. We've retrieved Bismarck! She's heavily damaged but she's alive. We're rising to the surface with her now
[21:33] <Durand> My my.
[21:35] <~> This is Command of Normandy to all ground forces. We're detecting no further threats in your area. We're now moving to assist with the situation at the Aurora Guyot.
[21:36] <Durand> Sounds good.
[21:37] <Naoto> Hopefully Hamuko and Millicent have had luck in finding what's causing that planetary shield.
[21:37] <Capt. David O`Cain> Understood, Normandy. What's the latest report there?
[21:39] *** Suddenly, there's ANOTHER explosion deep underwater! Bismarck and U-556 both watch as explosions engulf the wreckage of the Rock You Like A Hurricane
[21:40] *** The wrecked vessel suddenly shifts, then begins to careen off of the continental shelf and begins her slow plunge into the depths of the Void.
[21:43] *** As the ship plunges down, breaking up in the process, the planetary shield starts to shut down. A faint signal is being beamed out of the Hurricane although it makes no sense at all since it's in a weird hexidecimal code!
[21:43] <Forest Kit> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[21:44] <Hellesponte AI> Ground forces, are you receiving?
[21:45] * starts JAMMING the radio channels with massive transmissions of hymnals and prayers of victory and gratitude!!
[21:45] * Cadia AI ^
[21:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> We would, Helles, if Cadia would SHUT UP!
[21:46] <Naoto> Ugh, my audio receptors.
[21:46] <Hellesponte AI> The planetary shield is down! It's deactivating all over the planet. And...I've picked up a transmission from the Rock You Like A Hurricane
[21:47] <Megan O`Cain> Can you make it out?
[21:47] <Hellesponte AI> The had a Machine Intelligence of its own, and...this is difficult to express.
[21:48] <Hellesponte AI> It self-destructed in order to stop what was happening.
[21:48] <Megan O`Cain> Eh?
[21:48] *** And the transmission it sent was its identification codes AND a final message.
[21:49] <Hellesponte AI> ^
[21:50] <Hellesponte AI> "May my last act serve the Langisters well."
[21:51] <Megan O`Cain> I see.
[21:51] <Burroughs> Wow.
[21:51] <Hellesponte AI> And the identification codes were of a different voidship altogether. The Hurricane's core-cogitator, and the Machine Intelligence within, were from a completely different vessel algother.
[21:51] <Hellesponte AI> The Tenacious.
[21:52] <Chibi-Leady> <__<;
[21:52] <Alan> ....something you feel like sharing, Leady?
[21:53] * Megan O`Cain and David both look at Leady
[21:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Start talking, rat fink.
[21:55] <Chibi-Leady> When I had the Hurricane originally built, I wanted to give her an edge, so I investigated the crash-site of the Tenacious and found that its core-cogitator was intact and undamaged.
[21:56] <Chibi-Leady> So I had it installed in my ship. The AI was more than happy to serve the Langisters once again, even if in a kinda roundabout way.
[21:57] <Chibi-Leady> Once Alldrogis blew up the Fabricator, the Tenacious AI must have been able to reassert control over itself once again and triggered an overload in order to prevent the ship from being further used.
[21:59] <Capt. David O`Cain> Did Solar know what you were up to? At all?
[22:01] <Forest Kit> >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[ >:[
[22:04] <Chibi-Leady> No, I don't think he did.
[22:04] <Chibi-Leady> And the Tenacious AI wanted it that way.
[22:05] <Capt. David O`Cain> Okay, then. So who was controlling it after your ship crashed?
[22:07] <Chibi-Leady> I thought it had been destroyed on impact. Either the AI had been dormant, or it was reactivated and repurposed. We may never know for sure at this point.
[22:10] <Forest Kit> you keep from langiater kits >:O
[22:12] <Chibi-Leady> They weren't even BORN when the Tenacious was wrecked!
[22:13] <Brickfist> OI. It's not like dez was ANGRY. Da ship was LOOT, and Leady gots ta LOOTIN'
[22:15] <Capt. David O`Cain> Helles, was there any more data transmitted?
[22:16] <Hellesponte AI> Yes.
[22:17] <Hellesponte AI> It was specifically for the Governor-Militant, so I routed it just to him.
[22:19] <Capt. David O`Cain> Understood. Figured there was some more to the story.
[22:19] <Hellesponte AI> I'm sending down additional shuttles to begin transporting you all offworld.
[22:19] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Then that makes my next command that much easier.
[22:20] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> ALL GIRLS OF AZUR LANE. Stand down and return to base.
[22:21] * Naoto sends a message out to Hamuko and Millicent to return.
[22:21] *** And pause here for the night. Tomorrow...will be the final wrap-up. I know it's been FOREVER getting to this point, so thank you all in advance for staying with me all the way up to now.
[19:58] *** And finally!!
[20:01] * Solarchos supervises everything on the Island as the last of the Thunderhawk transporters set down.
[20:04] * Capt. David O`Cain has the Queen's Bounty roll onto land at Base Island
[20:05] * The Descos are milling things over as they recover from dealing with that Plague Leviathan. One in particular, Rui-71, still looks a little green around the gills. @_@
[20:07] *** Suddenly, there's a bit of a commotion as two Kansen make it ashore: U-556 and Bismarck!
[20:07] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hm?
[20:07] <Sigma-3> ?! Is that--
[20:09] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:10] * Bismarck pulls herself ashore, unable to stand due to the massive damage her body has taken
[20:10] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> It would appear that yet more of your "children" have arrived.
[20:11] <Solarchos> Huh?
[20:11] * Solarchos turns to look. "Whaaaaa?!"
[20:12] <Anima-22> Miss U-556 found Bismarck!
[20:13] *** The juvenile Sea Emperor pokes its head up out of the water too! OwwO
[20:13] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> OwO
[20:14] <Capt. David O`Cain> Looks she had some help.
[20:14] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> Friend :D
[20:15] * Bismarck pushes U-556 away from her a little.
[20:15] <U-556> But you're crippled! Let me...!
[20:16] <Bismarck> NIEN! I must face Father on my own, as I am.
[20:17] <Omoi-00> In your current state?! You're damn lucky you're still in one piece.
[20:18] * Solarchos starts hurrying over.
[20:19] *** A bunch of OTHER people start rushing over too. It's the old veterans from the Last Bastion!
[20:22] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan calmly head over towards Bismarck as do Donovan and Michelle
[20:27] *** The veteran soldiers take up positions around U-556 and Bismarck...and take aim with their rifles.
[20:32] <Capt. David O`Cain> Solar, you might wanna...
[20:32] <Solarchos> STAND DOWN!
[20:32] <Solarchos> No one do anything without my express order.
[20:33] * Bismarck peers upwards at the figure approaching.
[20:33] <U-556> :D
[20:33] <U-556> It is Father!
[20:36] <Bismarck> Father...please let me approach you.
[20:36] <Solarchos> Approach me?
[20:43] * Bismarck drags herself forward and pulls herself close to Solarchos' feet.
[20:44] * Bismarck pulls her limp legs up underneath her to make it look like she's sitting on her legs, then leans forward, bowing her head down to the ground, her hands clenched into fists and pressed into the ground to support her.
[20:46] <Bismarck> Father, we have caused tremendous harm. We understand now that the Last Command drove us insane and in our insanity we committed an atrocity. I beg for your forgiveness in the name of all of my sisters.
[20:48] <Bismarck> We of Ironblood pledge our eternal loyalty to you and you alone. I ask that you allow us to find some way to atone for our actions in the past. Our iron is yours to wield. Our blood is yours to shed. Our bodies are yours to command.
[20:50] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> I can certainly make use of them, Dad. They ARE one of the most advanced factions.
[20:51] * the Forest and Tundra Kits are providing FLOOOOOOOOOOF
[20:53] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[20:53] <Solarchos> Will you serve my children as well?
[20:55] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> and all kits,too? :D
[20:55] <Bismarck> They are your Sons and Daughters. They are the carriers of your legacy and divinity, Father. You will command us first, and we will obey them should you command it.
[20:56] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> us, too? :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
[20:59] * Bismarck looks at the Kits. "Uhhh, our loyalty is to our Father..."
[20:59] * Solarchos sees the Forest and Tundra Kits and smirks a little.
[21:01] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[21:01] <Solarchos> I will accept your pledge, Bismarck. But first, you must prove your devotion.
[21:02] * Bismarck sits up, her normally stoic expression now replaced with one of rapture. "Anything!"
[21:03] <Solarchos> You must submit yourself to the Trial of the FLOOF!!!
[21:03] <Capt. David O`Cain> Trial...?
[21:03] <the Forest and Tundra Kits> YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
[21:04] <Megan O`Cain> Of the Floof?
[21:05] * the Forest and Tundra Kits all SWARM and descend towards Bismarck >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D
[21:10] <Bismarck> O_____O
[21:11] * Bismarck is ENGULFED!!!!
[21:11] <Solarchos> Now, as for the rest of you.
[21:12] <Solarchos> Megan, David, Descos...let's get you all home, shall we?
[21:14] <Carina-21> Well, Miss Haru did ask of us to ensure the Sea Emperors' growth and development...... though we've grown to really like this place.
[21:16] <Solarchos> Would you like to stay here then? It might be helpful, especially now with this new xenos threat.
[21:17] * The Descos chat amongst themselves for a few minutes.... before an agreement is made. They plan on sticking around.
[21:21] <Solarchos> And with the discovery of a VanSaar/Alliance settlement here, Planeta del Agua is technically a protectorate of the Federation now, so that means I'll be sticking around for a while longer to get things squared away.
[21:21] <Solarchos> And there's the matter of actually visiting this Last Bastion.
[21:21] <Yusa-44> Who knows.... maybe we'll find more things buried here.
[21:23] <Solarchos> Plus my children will need some help in getting things squared away with Azur Lane.
[21:25] <Chibi-Leady> I'd like to leave this place too. I think I'd like to see the rest of the Federation. After all, the last time I saw it it only consisted of two star systems. I understand it's gotten a little bigger since the war ended.
[21:26] <Kagerou Imaizumi> Just bring me home. The ocean is SCARY!!! T__T
[21:27] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> We wanna go home too...and NOT IN A SHIP CONSTRUCTED BY KERBALS!!
[21:28] <Megan O`Cain> I'm sure we'd like to get back home as well. We all could use some time to wind down, relax, and perhaps not do long trips for a while.
[21:28] <Burroughs> Well, if you need some extra room, the Fafnir has some space.
[21:28] <Michelle O`Cain> Yeah. This deployment felt much longer than it should have been.
[21:31] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Great Leader, what would you like us from Northern Parliament to do?
[21:35] * Solarchos looks at Rossiya. "Rejoin the others at the fleet base for repairs and await Shikikan AnTil's orders. I think he's proven himself to be a competent leader."
[21:36] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Da. Will do.
[21:36] * Sovetskaya Rossiya and her comrades head back to the fleet's base
[21:37] <Donovan O`Cain> I have a good suspicion we'll be seeing them for a good while.
[21:38] <Solarchos> In the meantime, let's get you all back home.
[21:40] <Megan O`Cain> Yes, please.
[21:41] *** Meanwhile, in the depths of the Void...a new threat will always emerge
[21:41] <Capt. David O`Cain> No doubt those of us that got stuck down here deserve some relief.
[21:44] * Solarchos leads everyone to the waiting transports. Time to return home.
[21:44] *** And with that, let us conclude the Subnautica Crusade. I'm sorry it took so long to get to this point, but life hasn't exactly been kind to me since the start of this year.
[21:45] <Burroughs> (( Hey, this year has been a hell of a ride for us all. ))
[21:45] *** So let's call it a night...and let someone else have fun in the Event Box for a while!
[21:45] *** Good night everyone.
[21:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> (( Yeah. But in truth, worth the distraction. ))

[20:36] *** Back to the action in cape may.
[20:45] <D. Kakaku> Any way we're going to be able to cross a destroyed bridge?
[21:05] <Georgia Banno> what do we do
[21:07] <D. Kakaku> there's only two ways across, one, we swim, and two, we wait for someone to bridge the gap.
[21:08] <D. Kakaku> but only temporarily.
[21:08] <D. Kakaku> we don't want them following us across
[21:11] *** Flaming skulls are flying towards the both of you.
[21:12] <Georgia Banno> ...I say we swim
[21:12] <D. Kakaku> alright.
[21:12] * D. Kakaku runs towards the out of order bridge.
[21:16] * D. Kakaku Jumps off after a bit of hesitation as a splashing sound is heard soon after.
[21:18] * Georgia Banno dives in
[21:20] * D. Kakaku comes up out of the water, shaking his head.
[21:27] * Georgia Banno rises out of the water as well
[21:33] <D. Kakaku> gotta find a pier on the other side.
[21:37] * Georgia Banno nods
[21:40] * D. Kakaku starts swimming.
[21:44] *** roll1d20 for pier search, 15 or higher nets a pier to get onto.
[21:51] <spiritflame> Georgia Banno rolls 1d20 [ 2 ]
[21:52] * Georgia Banno doesn't seem to find one
[21:52] *** no piers in this section of the canal, northwest or southeast?
